Nanaimo Airport

Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada

Type Travel
Size 55,000 SF
Year 2034

The Nanaimo Airport expansion delivers a flexible design to facilitate future growth which is anticipated to triple the existing airport size by 2035. Completion of the first phase of the masterplan increases the passenger departure lounge space and provides dedicated passenger security. The architectural solution includes an elegant modular building design that can be easily and seamlessly repeated to accommodate future expansions.

The new design is inspired by the regional landscape, geology, mining and forestry industries, as well as aeronautical structures from the period of distinguished pilot Raymond Collisaw, after whom the original terminal is named. The new Nanaimo Airport aims to create a memorable and meaningful community gateway for central Vancouver Island visitors and residents, that reflects its past and speaks to confidence in its future.

This project was completed in association with Checkwitch Poiron Architects Inc.
