On July 6, 2005, City and State officials gathered with representatives from the Airport and JLG Architects to cut the ribbon on a new, state-of-the-art, $2.4 million passenger terminal in Devils Lake, North Dakota. Largely supported by the training mission of the nearby National Guard’s Camp Grafton, the travel needs of the Devils Lake Region have been steadily increasing over the past decade. The new 5,600-square-foot facility, which nearly doubles the size of the former terminal, was designed to meet the community’s growing air transportation needs while also accommodating the new security requirements in the air travel industry. North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan commented, “This is a good day for the City of Devils Lake and the State of North Dakota. Air travel is an important part of our transportation network, and for providing access to businesses in the Devils Lake region who must travel for work.”
JLG Architects’ design for the new airport terminal gives the Devils Lake region a new landmark for their community. The terminal reflects the heritage of flight with its aerodynamic roofline and exposed cable/strut structural system. The exposed metals, masonry, and wood finishes offer economical and durable construction while respecting the character of aviation industry and the local region. Traffic flow is controlled in the central portion of the terminal, which consists of the lobby, ticketing, screening area, and passenger holding, while the two wings of the building contain offices, a training room, baggage handling, and return rooms. Access to secured areas is controlled with a card reader system. “This building will be the first impression of the Devils Lake community for many that will be traveling through this airport, said Dan Miller, the Architect for the Terminal. “We think that this facility will be a first class introduction for visitors to the area.”
