We are part of the design-build team for the proposed Braniff Centre Redevelopment Project. The building was constructed in 1958 and originally served as the Operation and Maintenance Building for Braniff Airlines. It was determined eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places for its association with post-World War II aviation-related development in Dallas and at Love Field.
Our architects conducted an architectural evaluation of the building’s exterior to assess the condition of the existing materials and to make recommendations for what can be preserved and what must be replaced in kind according to the Secretary of the Interior Standards for Rehabilitation. The team is also conducting consultation with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the State Historic Preservation Office to ensure the design and implementation of the rehabilitation will not adversely affect the historically significant building. Finally, the team is assisting with design of the facility and will conduct approved demolition and rehabilitation activities. Ultimately, the revitalized facility will operate as a mixed-use property including high-end hangar space, office and retail operations, and a memorial to Braniff Airlines.
Aircraft Ramp Restoration and Modifications
The existing ramp and taxiway is being restored and refurbished to meet FAA and City of Dallas Aviation Department requirements and in a manner to minimize the risk of foreign object debris (FOD) damage to aircraft. There is an existing grassy area south of the hangar complex that new ramp paving infill installed. The new concrete apron will meet FAA and City of Dallas Aviation Department requirements.
