Project DescriptionContributing to O'Hare International Airport's Terminal 5’s world-class traveler experience, ROCKFON’s team provided the open plenum metal ceiling system above the newly redesigned TSA Checkpoint, and a metal baffle ceiling system above the renovated and expanded Concessions Program.
O’Hare International Airport ranks as the world’s second-busiest airport. Westfield oversees concession management at Terminal 5, and guided the terminal’s transformation and expansion from 15,000 to 26,000 square feet. Westfield Concession Management and its tenant partners are investing more than $26 million into the terminal’s redevelopment.
Westfield selected Epstein’s interior design and structural engineering team for the project. “Terminal 5 was designed 21 years ago by Perkins+Will. Its Modern, clean design is recognized and appreciated. We did not want this to feel like a renovation that didn’t consider the existing architecture. Instead, we wanted to adhere to it, but make it better. We wanted to take the vocabulary of the original building and continue it through the mezzanine renovation and expansion,” explains John Kolb, Epstein’s associate vice president, IIDA, LEED(R) AP.
