NASHVILLE, TN — The Hensel Phelps team announces that the Nashville International Airport (BNA) International Arrivals Facility marketplace and new gates are available to passengers. The project team worked to complete phase two of the $445 million program after finishing the Terminal Lobby earlier this year. The progressive design-build team has successfully renovated and expanded BNA while keeping the airport operational since the project’s award back in November of 2018.

Passengers can now walk through TSA and enter the expansion that includes a marketplace with faux-realistic trees in a central gathering space, 15 new dining, retail, and service concessions, and expanded and high-end amenities such as passenger hold room space, restrooms, and a mother’s room. Six new flexible gates can handle domestic and international flights and accommodate multiple airlines.

The customs and border protection (CBP) space is complete with booths, back-of-house operations, and new baggage handling systems for international passengers. The space features art pieces that include a three-piece mural in the CBP area showcasing Tennessee and artwork depicting musicians, actors, artists, and the culture of Tennessee displayed along the tunnel that welcomes international passengers to the United States.

Over the course of the five-year project, Hensel Phelps worked in close collaboration with the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority and Fentress Architects.
