The Jeppesen Terminal at Denver International Airport (DEN) features 1.5 million square feet of space, and includes passenger ticketing, baggage claim, ground transportation, international arrivals, shops and restaurants, office areas and the TSA security checkpoints. Located beneath the iconic white tented rooftop of the terminal is an area referred to as the Great Hall. The Great Hall is a spacious, open area that tens of millions of passengers experience when they head to the TSA checkpoints prior to a flight, or after arriving at the terminal from the concourses via the passenger arrivals area on Level 5.
Passengers, employees and people interested in the progress of America’s airports will be interested to know that DEN’s “Great Hall” may undergo a significant redesign and changes in the next few years. No, the iconic canopy isn’t going anywhere, but what’s underneath it may soon look fairly different. The goal: keep DEN one of the safest, most convenient, and enjoyable airports in the world.
Redeveloping the flow, design and use of the Great Hall would have many benefits for the travelling public and the airport. We invite you to browse this site to learn more about the Great Hall project and find the latest updates on the design process and next steps.
