Texas-based HNTB Corp., has hired Mark Lobel, IIDA, as Senior Project Manager/Aviation Architecture. Lobel is based in Dallas and will work with clients nationwide, initially focusing on the firm’s work designing two concourse expansions at Denver International Airport.

Over the last decade, Lobel has worked on high-profile projects at large airports, both in the U.S. and internationally, to help improve the travel experience for passengers through enhanced shopping, dining, and entertainment options while seeking creative ways for airports to generate additional non-aviation revenues. His past projects include storefront design and development of tenant design criteria for incoming concessionaires for the Dallas Love Field Airport Modernization Program; overseeing commercial planning of the Terminal Renovation and Improvement Program at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport; and development of a concessions master plan for a new terminal at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in Guangzhou, China.

“Mark’s passion for improving service to the traveling public will serve our aviation clients well,” says Scott Slaughter, AIA, NCARB, Principal/Aviation Architecture and Associate Vice President. “His thoughtful approach to design and how it helps airports maximize their resources helps solidify our position as a trusted advisor across all aspects of the aviation industry.”

Lobel earned both a master’s and a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Tulane University.
