The High C Gates project at DFW airport is using the latest tech innovations to improve the travel experience.
Located at the south end of Terminal C, Gates C35-C39 were built utilizing the latest innovation in modular construction and engineering. The gates were constructed offsite, then transported overnight into place to allow for the inside finishes to begin. These new gates enhance the customer experience with innovative technology such as energy efficient, dynamic glass windows that tint in response to the sun and smart restrooms. The gate lounges feature large digital information screens that feature flight information for that gate.
The new, five-gate concourse was built in prefabricated modules, which were transported to the terminal and put together on-site. The unique construction process saves time and money, and is a first for a U.S. airport. Check out this video of the construction as it was in-progress:
