Chicago Department of Aviation / O’Hare Airport Terminal 5 Expansion

The 300,000 SF expansion will add eight new gates, new lounges, new concessions/retail, reworked baggage handling systems, enhanced customs and border patrol processing, and expanded TSA check points.

Chicago Department of Aviation / MDW Airport Security Checkpoint Expansion
This 80,000 square foot expansion, lead by M2, is centered over Cicero Avenue, and connects the Air-side Terminal Building to the Land-side Terminal Building. The expansion will vastly improve circulation and reduce waiting times during peak periods.  The centrally located checkpoint will accommodate up to 26 full-equipped security lanes, and includes a greatly expanded queue space.  Expansion further rationalizes pedestrian flow by segregating entering and exiting passengers and providing a dedicated employee entrance.  Expanded retail opportunities are also created. The Checkpoint creates a natural gateway for passengers departing on their journeys or for visitors arriving to Chicago.  The physical location of the Checkpoint, over Cicero Avenue also creates a gateway for passengers arriving by vehicles (and for vehicles passing through).

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport / DFW Hold Room of the Future
M2 is providing complete architectural design services for the new DFW Holdroom project. This new concept replaces traditional seating, information displays, and elements with interactive, digital features that offer unique experiences. Sculptural seating elements, and a unique, interactive pavilion structure seamlessly integrate technology with architectural elements. Digital surfaces offer interactive content that can be adapted to assist the boarding process as well as providing curated digital content featuring scenes from the Dallas Fort Worth area and international destinations. This novel approach to the gate area blurs the traditional lines between the “hold room” space and the rest of the terminal by seamlessly weaving together experiential elements and concessions opportunities with traditional gate area amenities.

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport / DFW K-9 & Bomb Squad Training Facility
M2 is providing complete architectural design services for a new 15,000 SF K-9 and Bomb Squad Training Facility to be located in the DFW’s Southwest Campus. The new facility will include dog kennels, dog runs, a dog training area, veterinarian space, an explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) room, office space and locker rooms. The facility will also include pull-though apparatus bays for four specialized police vehicles and an additional area to store and repair robotic devices. The saw-tooth roof design allows for natural light and ventilation to infiltrate the apparatus bays and the administration areas of the facility. The south-facing pitch of the roofing components provide for ideal location for photo-voltaic panels, which will greatly contribute to DFW’s net-zero goal.
