The OIA South Terminal Complex Phase 1 at 2.7 million square feet is the first phase of Orlando’s new world class domestic and international terminal. The new Landside and Airside establish the complex with 19 gates. Passengers will retrieve their luggage on the top level in a grand, expansive, light filled space where they may meet their loved ones and proceed along a “boulevard” through the center of the terminal surrounded by gardens, fountains, art, interactive media features, innovative retail and concessions, and of course the beautiful Central Florida landscape.

Construction is scheduled to complete in 2021 in concert with the arrival of the Brightline train connecting rail travelers from Miami to Orlando International Airport. Ramski & Company assisted the Phase 1 Fentress design team with material reviews and presentations to optimize design continuity with the North terminal and the Intermodal Transit Facility and elevate the quality travel experience synonymous with Orlando International Airport. The HNTB Architect of Record team including Ramski & Company completed the design detailing for the iconic structure to truly elevate the “Orlando Experience.”
