DHK was the architect of record for the International Airport Terminal at Mayaguana Island (Bahamas), the first stage of a comprehensive, island-wide resort development project. The 12,600 SF facility was intended to house all air travel departure and arrival functions for the island, including security, customs, and immigration. It was designed to simultaneously handle passenger loading from two Airbus A300 planes, one arriving and one departing. Since all airport infrastructures were going to be reconstructed concurrently, the terminal building project included provisions for all surrounding site development and utilities with the exception of aircraft runways and aprons.
The Mayaguana Island Resort was intended to eventually cover 10,000 acres of largely undeveloped land. After completion of the airport, the developer expected to construct a number of mixed-use leisure resort facilities around two waterfront locations, plus a number of public nature preserve parks. Subsequent development activity would include an industrial park for ecologically-sound enterprises, additional resort facilities, and public recreational areas.
