John Glenn International Airport Terminal and Baggage Claim Modernization
KLH was selected as the MEP engineer for the baggage claim renovation project at the John Glenn International Airport (CMH), completed in 2016. The main baggage claim serves all three of the airport’s concourses and is the central location through which passengers travel as they depart the airport. KLH provided full mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and lighting engineering and design services for the renovation. The plumbing scope included the complete relocation and expansion of existing restrooms at both the north and south ends of the baggage claim.
Due to low ceiling height in some areas of the baggage claim, multiple ceilings were raised requiring the HVAC, electrical, and fire protection systems to be relocated. Electrical engineering services included new LED lighting throughout the space, addition of powered seating throughout, and electrical system modifications required to support the new program. A prime element of this renovation was to increase the overall lighting levels throughout the baggage claim as well as include a number of cove lighting features that positively accentuate the space. KLH’s lighting design group was critical to the project, leveraging their skill in photometric modeling and construction feasibility, making the design concept a success.
