In 1993, CIC’s founder, Eloise Gonzalez
, and the CIC team were awarded the reconstruction of the largest international Terminal in Miami International Airport, Terminal J. Building upon this legacy, CIC was again entrusted with the project by the Miami Dade Aviation Department, and charged with a bigger and even better remodel. Eager for the opportunity to work on what was one of his mother’s most cherished projects, Francisco Geller quickly tapped the CIC design team to begin planning. As COVID-19 has changed the function of many day-to-day operations, Francisco had to innovate, working remotely and relying on our advanced 3D rendering and modeling systems to plan the redesign. This project consisted of remastering the carpet tile and each individual gate within Terminal J.
These unique features are more vibrant than most airport terminals, encapsulating the true nature of Miami life, and pushing the envelope of commercial design. Using rich materials and our industry-leading rendering and design technology, we were able to easily collaborate with the on-site designer and demonstrate the dynamism and durability of the terminal through more than 500 3d-rendered images prior to venturing onsite.
