Burns & McDonnell completes design/construction for redevelopment of Braniff Airways Base in Dallas

Burns & McDonnell has announced the completion of design and construction services for the redevelopment of the Dallas operations and maintenance base of Braniff Airways, the company said.

After sitting dormant for more than two decades, the aviation landmark is flying high once again, this time as the Braniff Centre — an aviation hub and multi-use facility designed to generate corporate and commercial momentum along the east side of Dallas Love Field Airport.

Burns & McDonnell, in association with Dallas-based national construction firm The Gravity Company, was selected to provide design-build services for the Braniff Centre´s executive terminal and its components in 2015. The engineering, architecture and construction firm was also tasked with restoring the façade of the base´s central atrium — a concourse structure nestled between two sloping hangar wings to resemble a bird in flight.

Burns & McDonnell is a family of companies bringing together an unmatched team of 7,600 engineers, construction professionals, architects, planners, technologists and scientists to design and build our critical infrastructure. With an integrated construction and design mindset, we offer full-service capabilities with more than 55 offices, globally.
