The Denver International Airport released new renderings this week of its ongoing gate expansion and the amenities that will be included.

The project will add 39 new gates to the airport, increasing the airport’s gate capacity by 30%.

“Not only will there be new gates, new concessions, lounge seating, nursing rooms and family restrooms,” said Alex Renteria, a DIA spokesperson.

Under the design plans, each concourse will also feature an outdoor patio in the secured area so that passengers can get some fresh air without needing to go through TSA again.

The 39 gates will be spread out throughout the three concourses. The new gates will be located at the ends of each concourse. Here is a breakdown of the new gates:

-A-West: 12 gates

-B-West: 4 gates
-B-East: 7 narrow-body gates
-C- East: 16 gates

Along with new gates, each concourse is also getting an outdoor patio installed. The patios will feature a pet relief area, outdoor seating and fire pits.

Holder Construction and FCI Constructors Inc. will work on Concourse B-East and Concourse C-East, and Turner Construction and Flatiron Construction on Concourse A-West and Concourse B-West. HNTB Corp. and Jacobs Engineering Group were contracted for architectural and design services for the project.

B-West will be complete by the end of 2020 and A-West, B-East and C-East will be complete by the end of 2021.
