As part of a $60 million expansion project at the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Airport, Sordoni constructed a new passenger terminal, pedestrian tunnel, and parking structure.
The 127,000 SF Joseph M. McDade passenger terminal contains eight boarding gates and six passenger boarding bridges to accommodate travel to and from the growing Northeastern Pennsylvania region. Airport amenities include restaurants, a gift shop, meditation room and also the state-of-the-art Pocono Club and Business Center, which offers workspaces with data ports and wireless internet access.
Architectural features of the terminal include an exterior skin composed of curtain wall, metal panels, skylights, and masonry, exposed glue-laminated trusses, and large expanses of locally quarried West Mountain sandstone.
The 233,500 SF parking structure consists of 4 levels of precast panels and columns with parking for 650 cars, 480 of which are covered parking. A glass elevator and stair tower anchors the main entrance to the garage and provides entrance to a pedestrian tunnel that links the parking garage with the terminal’s ticketing and baggage claim facility.
