NAMC – March Lunch & Learn with Clark Construction Topic: United Airlines Terminal B Transformation project at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in Houston, Texas

IAH Terminal B Transformation Program to accommodate a projected 36 million future passengers with brand new gates and amenities for travelers.

United Airlines and the Houston Airport System (HAS) announced a landmark investment in United’s hub at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) with United’s Terminal B Transformation Program. This ambitious project is set to redefine the air travel experience and cater to the future needs of an estimated 36 million passengers. The program highlights include:

  • Construction of 40 new gates for both domestic and international travel
  • Ensuring a cutting-edge experience for travelers.

“This investment further supports United’s position as Houston’s carrier of choice,” said Phil Griffith, United’s Vice President of IAH. “On behalf of our more than 14,000 employees who call Houston home, I can’t wait to continue to do all we can to serve our customers flying to, from and through our hub on more than 400 flights each day.”  

Travelers will find new conveniences and amenities throughout their airport experience. The Terminal B transformation includes:
  • Expanding curbside and roadway capacity
  • Expanding the ticketing lobby
  • Offering passengers convenience through dynamic signage
  • Intuitive wayfinding systems
  • Ground-level check-in area
  • A streamlined security processing area on the 3rd Floor.

Once through security, the New Terminal B North expansion comprises two new passenger concourses, replacing the 1969-era Flight Stations. The Terminal B North Concourse, spanning approximately 765,000 square feet over three levels, will house 22 narrow-body gates. Additionally, a large United Club at the mezzanine level will offer unobstructed views of the airfield, set to become the largest club in the United system.

The Terminal B South Concourse project involves converting:
  • 30 gates that currently house smaller
  • 50-seat regional jets to accommodate larger, two-class regional jets.
  • Unlike in the current terminal, all flights will be boarded via a jet bridge.

The concourse design caters to a multitude of travelers and is expected to feature amenities like a sensory room, a multimedia interactive United-branded “park,” and comfort zones for passengers with disabilities that provide a quiet space for those needing to decompress between TSA and boarding processing. The project will also include two major concessions hubs, offering 115,000 square feet of state-of-the-art food and retail space including unique dining and shopping experiences.

The baggage claim hall will be expanded, and a new baggage handling system, equipped with advanced baggage tracking technology, will support increased capacity.
