Luminary profile: Greg Detmer
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.
