Seattle Tacoma International Airport Concourse A Seating Infrastructure
200 new outlets for seating at 15 gates across 45,000 square foot area
This project, undertaken by Casne Engineering, aimed to enhance travelers' comfort by improving the seating and electrical infrastructure in the boarding areas at an airport. One significant aspect of this project was updating the older seating with new comfortable seating that also had built-in electrical charging capabilities. They designed the necessary electrical infrastructure, including panels, conduits, and wiring, as well as added 200 new outlets at 15 gates across a 45,000 sq. ft. area on Concourse A. The project involved an extensive field investigation to determine the best locations for coring through the existing slab into the bag well and airline offices below. Additionally, Casne took responsibility for designing the communication cabling for the new Flight Information Displays at each gate. This project aimed to address passengers' desire for comfort and utility while waiting at the boarding areas of an airport.
