Creating a smaller world…

The rapidly transforming aviation industry is requiring a shift from the formerly static holdrooms and terminals to dynamic and interrelated spaces. Iron Horse brings design technology to the next level. We approach the interrelatedness of the airline baggage and ticketing; airport security and gateway; concessions; transit connections; and city infrastructure by listening to clients and the associated project stakeholders. This team brings decades of experience to our clients’ challenges and works alongside them to collaboratively develop solutions that meet their goals. We understand the intricacies of airport management, along with the many pressures and levels of coordination that take place in these facilities that remain open and running twenty-four hours a day. Whether airside or landside, we improve projects within the aviation community by utilizing advanced Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) technologies.
