Greg Detmer
Greg Detmer, leader of our terminal planning practice, has more than 25 years of architectural experience with a specialization in airport passenger terminals and other on-airport facilities. His extensive experience includes the development of new terminal facilities, analysis of passenger terminal expansions and concessions, and evaluation of terminal functional areas and capacities, consolidated rental car facilities, and ground access and parking facilities.
At Boston-Logan International Airport, Greg serves as the lead for our On-call Planning Services contract, providing ongoing terminal and landside focused planning advice to Massachusetts Port Authority. At Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, he is serving as terminal planner responsible for all terminal and landside area master planning for 10- and 20-year forecast periods representing 79- and 91-gate terminal area plans, respectively. Planning includes airport access, parking, phased terminal redevelopment program, and ramp area reconfiguration. He also is serving as Project Director for the Little Rock National Airport Terminal Plan, and served in that same role for the Raleigh-Durham International Airport Terminal A Project Definition.
Prior to joining LeighFisher, Greg headed the Boston architecture office of a major transportation infrastructure firm, leading its practice in the Northeast. His airport experience includes planning and design of terminals, rental car facilities, and parking structures as well as land use and strategic planning.

These traits characterize the terminal planning work of LeighFisher's Greg Detmer, and clients keep coming back for more.
It's obvious that Greg is in his element with a pen and an airport terminal layout. He quickly sketches several ideas to solve a nagging problem so as to ensure passenger flows from curbside to boarding gate are intuitive and smooth.
He hands the ideas off to the modeling team for analysis of the efficiency of each, and moves on to other issues.
Before the planning team digs into technical issues, Greg leads project participants into a common vision framework designed to achieve the airport management's objectives.
This is where his deep understanding of historical terminal development, as well as current trends, provides the basis for establishing an achievable vision. "Airports are going through a rapid transition," Greg says.
"It's a matter of keeping everyone moving in the same direction and building that consensus," Greg says.
Greg brings his development experience into this arena, translating aspirational goals into terminal aspects and components that can actually be built.
Along the way he brings his creative skills to bear, coming up with new ideas or a new twist on an old idea to solve the unique and myriad problems facing airport planners.
Predictably, one of the biggest challenges to address in the planning process is how to pay for capital improvements that can entail significant long-term financial commitments.
LeighFisher's clients have a long-term planning horizon, but a short-term requirement to fund improvements. "Our fundamental goal is for our clients to be successful," Greg says.
"Part of our strategy involves making sure clients are able to make cohesive discreet improvements that will work for them today and tomorrow, building toward the ultimate facility along the way."
Case in point: Currently, Greg is part of the strategic planning team for Boston Logan International Airport and the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport).
Like many major airports, says Greg, Logan has evolved over decades.
The strategic plan looks ahead to define Logan's role in 2030 and beyond, with an activity forecast of 40 million passengers per year.
Greg works with clients like Massport to lay out a program that will help them make the best decisions. "The future is rapidly approaching," he reminds them.
"We have to be much more adaptable now," Greg says.
From a planning standpoint, you always need to move forward "to establish a vision that is flexible enough to keep the airport experience from getting boxed in," Greg says.
"We have to respond to changes in technology while staying in touch with the human experience of flying. With this combination of visionary and technical skills, Greg Detmer leads the way to the future of strategic airport and passenger terminal development.
