Bradley International Airport, Consolidated Rental Car Facility

A major shift in airport accessibility over the past several years is the implementation of consolidated rental car facilities at medium and large hub airports. This strategy helps with furthering many airport initiatives, including better passenger experience, greater passenger throughput, consolidation of lease space, and overall a seamless transition from approaching the airport to checking in for a flight.

At Bradley International Airport, a 1.5 million square foot complex is being designed to streamline customer entry and provide passengers an enclosed path to the terminal to protect them from the elements. This complex will feature rental car parking as well as traditional airport parking and includes a quick turn-around facility to ensure that each car rented has been freshly cleaned and fueled.

Burns is part of the design-build team delivering 100% Issued for Construction documents, and is providing mechanical, electrical, electronics, plumbing and fire protection design services to the project team.

Burns is responsible for the Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, and Special Systems design for the Rental Car Facility.  The engineering designs features include energy recovery HVAC units, elevated electrical distribution capable of handling a large inrush of power consumption, a full sanitary drainage, domestic water supply, and storm drainage system, wet-pipe, dry-pipe, pre-action and high pressure sprinkler systems, and 360 degree camera coverage for enhanced security.
