In merging two companies, American Airlines tapped GRI to integrate office spaces at airports around the world.
In 2013, US Airways and American Airlines merged to become the world's largest air carrier. With the merger, came a need to consolidate the two office spaces at various airports around the world. GRI was selected to design and build the Cancun (CUN) and Portland, Oregon (PDX) airport offices with the new American Airlines brand standard.
At each location, GRI was able to design and build functional spaces despite continuous office occupation by both carriers. Using different construction phases and an unconventional building schedule during non-business hours, GRI successfully merged both sets of office spaces with minimal disruption, ensuring smooth operations for the world's largest airline.
