Ft. McMurray International Airport in Alberta, Canada is the striking new $258 million expansion, which highlights a new 160,000 sqft terminal, interior and exterior space connectivity, constructed using DMD’s Weathering Steel. Designed by the Office of OMB Architects, the new airport facilitates travel for 1,500,000 passengers annually.

The design team approached several distinct challenges posed by the building’s location. They wanted to stay true the pioneering essence of the region. The primary materials used, timber and weathering steel, played a role in defining the central public areas of the terminal. The adoption of these systems contributed to the identity of the community.
