SFO Terminal to be Revived with Green

Share this on:

Terminal 2 at the San Francisco International Airport has been left vacant for the past six years because a reduction in air travel after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 lead to a postponement of a major renovation. Now, it’s time for the terminal to be revitalized and officials say it will be done in environmentally-conscious way.sfo-airport.jpg

Remodeling plans include the use of green building materials, regional products, high efficiency lighting and water conservation strategies. Carbon emissions are expected to be reduced by 12,000 tons annually through these efforts.

Not only will the revamped terminal be built to high performance green building standards, but Airport Director John Martin, stated, “The design of the building will be distinctly San Francisco, said Martin, featuring the kind of upscale retail and gourmet food available in the airport’s two other domestic terminals.”

The newly renovated terminal is expected to open at the end of 2010.
