The sloped project area required extensive site work and retaining walls.

Sea-Tac Airport Consolidated Rental Car Facility

Location: SeaTac

General contractor: Turner Construction

Owner/developer: Port of Seattle

Primary designers: Walker Parking Consultants, KPFF Consulting Engineers, Demattei Wong Architecture

The port’s 2.1 million-square-foot, five-story reinforced concrete structure is topped with a concrete, steel and glass customer service building.

The 23-acre project site is sloped, which required extensive site work, retaining walls and progressive project planning. The project is the Port of Seattle’s first LEED silver project, as well as the first silver LEED for New Construction 2.2 rental car facility in the U.S.

The Turner team was awarded the Liberty Mutual gold award for completing 1.3 million hours of work without a lost-time incident, and the Turner project site superintendent, Dwayne Goddard, received a Liberty Mutual gold award for his contributions in keeping a safe project.

Despite the many challenges, including a seven-month suspension of work during the economic downturn, the Turner team returned to the port $15 million in savings.
