Charleston Terminal Redevelopment
and Improvement
Charleston, SC
2018 Honor Award Winner


Terrazzo Contractor
David Allen Company

Raleigh, NC

The redevelopment program of this terminal aimed to capture the essence of the city with a contemporary design. Approximately 125,000 square feet of epoxy thin-set terrazzo in five colors were installed in 30 phases. The bands throughout the concourses are accented with a railway design and a welcoming sunbeam pattern. Terrazzo was applied in some new construction areas but was primarily installed in existing structures over a combination of concrete slabs and brick pavers from the days before luggage had wheels. The airport was fully functional during renovation.
