Project designers modernized the 50-year-old airport located in Kailua-Kona Hawaii, by merging its two previously separate structures into one unified facility. The multi-phased KOA moderization project that broke ground in 2017 took on three main goals: to improve and connect the north and south terminals so it could be easily accesses from the inside of the airport, to improve inline service by adding self-check machines and inline baggage systems, and adding the $58.7 million federal inspection station that opened in October which guarantees Kona can keep one of its main economic engines, international tourism.
Kona Airport worked on many upgrades. They renovated bathrooms and enclosed lobby areas while still keeping the outdoor feel that adds to the airports charm. They want tourists to feel like they are in paradise when they get to the airport. They added more retail and restaurants, upgraded its baggage system, and added new lighting throughout. The 32,700-square-foot facility was completed two months before the agreed deadline, the department said.
Selux M130 was chosen for its enhanced illumination combined with the same flexibility and quality you’ve come to expect from Selux M-LED products. With several outputs and optical options it provides Kona Airport with not just more light, but more uniform light. Its a great solution for those large installation projects like the airport.
Kona Airport also used Selux M125, a luminaire essential for those needing light for safety in interior or exterior applications. This luminaire has high-impact and ingress protection to IP65 and IK10 standards. Used individually or in runs for applications such as airports and transportation stations, bus stops, parking garages, underpasses. M125 offers safe, efficient lighting, making it the perfect high protection luminaire for an airport.
