We are passionate about helping clients build great airports!

CSHQA specializes in small hub and general aviation airport design.  Our clients have found that our expertise and attention to detail are particularly suited to airports of this size. We thrive on the challenges of working around ongoing airport operations, limited budgets, and diverse stakeholders with many different needs.

We Understand Your Challenges

Smaller airports are more than a transportation hub; they are valuable community assets. We work with airports to make the most of their budgets: Re-purposing and expanding existing spaces, increasing airport revenues with improved concessions and airport services, and upgrading to new security and communications standards.

Safety and Accessibility Come First

We have built a national reputation for our work since our first foray into aviation design more than 35 years ago. We offer a cohesive, full-service team of architects, engineers, interior designers, and communications specialists. Our expert project phasing maintains airport operations throughout all types of construction. We understand the imperative of meeting FAA and other safety standards, while seeing to the comfort and convenience of the flying public.

Project experience includes:

  • Terminal buildings
  • Baggage handling systems
  • Rental car concessions, in terminal and on-site
  • Restaurant and retail concessions
  • Hangars and air cargo buildings
  • Snow removal equipment and maintenance facilities
  • Landside access, parking and landscape design
