Construction started on Parking Structure C at John Wayne Airport

Construction on Parking Structure C began in August 2009 and is scheduled for completion in Fall 2010. Although Parking Structure C will be complete in 2010, it is scheduled to open to the public concurrent with Terminal C in late 2011.

Background

By mid-2009, two major construction projects were completed on the Airport Improvement Program: (i) reconfiguring the South Remain-Over-Night (RON) aircraft parking area and allocating part of the area for temporary passenger parking, Parking Lot C; and (ii) closing and deconstructing Parking Structure B1. These enabling projects were required to make way for construction of Terminal C and Parking Structure C.

Project Scope

ParkingStructureC.jpgParking Structure C will be a five-level, post-tensioned concrete structure comprising a total area of approximately 725,000 square feet. This new structure will be one of the first parking structures built in California utilizing a buckling restrained brace (BRB) structural system. When complete, Parking Structure C will provide about 2,000 parking spaces to replace the 1,241 spaces that have been eliminated by the deconstruction of Parking Structure B1.
Walker Parking Consultants used a Building Information Modeling (BIM), a computer-generated, three-dimensional (3D) model, to show the layout of Parking Structure C.

Timeline

Construction on Parking Structure C began in August 2009 and is scheduled for completion in Fall 2010. Although Parking Structure C will be complete in 2010, it is scheduled to open to the public concurrent with Terminal C in late 2011.

Phase 2 of construction for Parking Structure C will create approximately 1,200 additional spaces. This second phase of the parking structure will be built when and as needed. The approval of Phase 2 is to be determined based on the need for additional parking and availability of funds to build the facility.

Budget

Parking Structure C is estimated to cost approximately $48.5 million. The project is being funded entirely by General Airport Revenue Bonds.
