A design-build project, the new 3-level, 2,700-stall, cast-in-place Parking Plaza encompasses 920,000 square feet. It now serves as one of the main gateways to the airport, creating a welcoming experience for travelers as they arrive. It features state-of-the-art technology to simplify the passenger experience, including a Parking Guidance System and a License Plate Recognition System. The design features active and passive safety features, along with local art that doubles as wayfinding cues. Work also included offsite improvements, including parking lot reconfigurations, utility relocations, and connection into the existing airport. The Parking Plaza is extremely energy efficient and has earned multiple sustainability awards from the industry. Swinerton self-performed the entire concrete scope of work.
