This landmark project is an important part of the recent expansion of the San Jose International Airport. Located on airport grounds, this new consolidated rental car facility and co-located “quick-turn-around” puts rental cars within convenient walking distance of the new terminals, and helped put San Jose ahead of its regional rivals in terms of on-airport services. Offsite prefabricated design and construction of this 1.8M SF structure greatly helped reduce congestion at the project site and save almost five months on the overall schedule. Offsite construction benefits (cost and schedule) contributed to the financial success of the project as well – helping bring it in $36M under its original budget of $270M.
When first completed, this project was the largest prefabricated concrete parking structure in California.
