TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 68: Guidebook for Evaluating Terminal Renewal Versus Replacement Options details a step-by-step process for conducting a business-driven evaluation of competing options to renew or replace airport terminal facilities.

Factors considered during the evaluation include life-cycle cost, airside/landside or terminal capacity in relation to passenger demand, facilities obsolescence and condition, development risk, development schedule, changes in regulatory requirements, airline needs, operational constraints, tenant make-up, and airport business model.

Excel-based analysis templates that reflect the unique operating and business environment of a particular airport are included on a CD-ROM that is included with the printed version of the report.

The CD-ROM is also available for download from TRB’s website as an ISO image. Links to the ISO image and instructions for burning a CD-ROM from an ISO image are provided below.
