The Gaines Group designs business center for CHO Airport
The Charlottesville Albemarle Airport (CHO) is set to unveil their new Business Center as the airport moves to meet the needs of their growing clientele. Roughly 1300 square feet of the existing upper northern concourse will now be home to a new business center that will house individual seating for the solo passenger that needs to “plug in” to small meeting spaces to a private conference room that can be reserved. Design elements such as brick, slate, drywall detailing, and light fixtures draw from the architecture of airport. Ray Gaines and Paul Tassell met with CHO staff to present their design ideas which were met with an overwhelming positive response. After approval, construction started immediately and will be complete early 2016.
