The International Parking Institute (IPI) recognized Clark Pacific, TranSystems, Watry Design, and Hensel Phelps by awarding the team with a 2011 Awards of Merit for their work on the Mineta San Jose International Aiport CONRAC. As part of a comprehensive improvement program, Mineta San Jose International Airport launched a two-phase relocation of its rental car center and Terminal B parking, starting with a 3,000-car, six-level structure that housed a Customer Service Building. The consolidated rental car facility, or CONRAC, is characterized by a distinctive, 70-by-1,200-ft. art façade on the freeway-facing side, where 400,000 white plastic dots create a monumental image of waving hands. A 4,660-panel, 1.12-megawatt solar array on the structure’s four-acre roof, one of the largest airport installations in the country, offsets about 20 percent of the structure’s overall energy use. This project represents a genuine public/private partnership, with 94 percent funded by the rental car companies and the remainder by the airport.
