SUFFOLK CELEBRATES KEY MILESTONE FOR LOGAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT RENTAL CAR CENTER PROJECT
Project team tops off $300 million, 50-acre consolidated rental car facility
BOSTON, MA, March 22, 2013 – Suffolk Construction, one of the leading privately held construction management firms in the country, recently celebrated the topping off of the 50-acre Rental Car Center at Boston’s Logan International Airport. Suffolk is managing construction of the Massachusetts Port Authority’s $300 million complex to consolidate Logan’s rental car facilities.
The Rental Car Center project (formerly titled the Consolidated Rental Agency Complex or ConRAC) includes construction of a four level, 1,200,000 square-foot precast parking garage and 112,000 square-foot customer service building that will house all rental car companies and their vehicles serving Logan in one convenient location. Maintenance/storage areas for rental car operations, referred to as Quick Turnaround Areas, will provide fueling, car washing, and cleaning facilities as well as vehicle storage.
While the construction of these buildings is a significant undertaking, it is only a component of the project scope, which also includes a reconfigured taxi pool, roadway and intersection improvements, site access improvements, and landscaping. The individual rental car bus fleet and Massport shuttle bus fleet will be consolidated from more than 100 buses to just 28 with alternative fuel buses. The new bus fleet will help to alleviate road and curb congestion for a better customer experience, and reduce vehicle emissions to better our environment. To accommodate the project, the existing Gage Gourmet flight kitchen has been demolished and the bus/limo pool and taxi pool have been temporarily relocated to another area in the airport.
Construction of ConRAC began in June 2010. Beneficial occupancy is scheduled for late 2013, while construction will be completed September 2014.
