Swinerton celebrated concrete topping off for the Los Angeles International Airport’s Parking Structure
Swinerton celebrated the concrete topping off for the Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Intermodal Transportation Facility-West (ITF-West) on October 17, 2020. The last 600 of 72,000 cubic yards of concrete were poured to complete the fourth level deck and concrete superstructure ahead of schedule. The groundbreaking was just a little over a year ago on July 12, 2019.
The 1.75 million-square-foot facility is a new four-story parking structure that will offer approximately 4,300 parking stalls and a mobility hub located east of LAX. It will provide travelers new options for pick-up and drop-off as well as parking.
“Our trusted partnership with LAWA and our design and trade partners have greatly contributed to successfully topping out the concrete scope of work on time under our accelerated project schedule,” said Jeff Goodermote, Director, Parking Structures, Swinerton. “We are excited to continue to provide LAWA with best-in-class construction services to create the state-of-the-art parking facility that will serve LAX’s passenger needs.”
Swinerton employed VD&C and BIM services to facilitate the construction, coordination, scheduling, phasing, and closeout of the work. Our BIM Execution Plan (BXP) was created with LAWA and served as an integral part of delivering the project ahead of schedule. At Swinerton, we are committed to continually optimizing our construction process and providing the best solutions for projects. Learn more about how we use technology in all of our projects.
“This successful topping out and last concrete pour is a result of great teamwork between all the people and entities involved in the project over the last two years. From top to bottom, LAWA leadership to the ironworkers and concrete finishers, everyone should be proud and satisfied with the project and their contributions,” said Kevin Hermreck, Project Executive
ITF-West will be the largest parking structure Swinerton has built to date. Check out our other parking structure projects.
