• Opened the short-term parking lot 70 days ahead of schedule, allowing the Airport Authority to collect critical parking revenue fees earlier than they expected.
• Mitigated impacts to the public, including an impressive operation to install two pedestrian bridges overnight and only close the roadway below for a matter of hours.
• Set the bar high for small and disadvantaged business participation, achieving 34% participation by this demographic. The team developed a program to engage and mentor the small and disadvantaged businesses to help them grow their businesses and promote long-term success.
• Earned LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, exceeding the Airport Authority’s requirement for Silver.
The San Diego International Airport Terminal 2 Landside Expansion, which was part of a project known as The GreenBuild, introduced a new 1,300-foot-long dual-level departures roadway in front of Terminal 2 which separates and simplifies departing from arriving passenger traffic. This major airport infrastructure project also included the construction of two outdoor, curbside check-in lobbies (Smart Curbs), an expanded transit center, two pedestrian sky bridges, a new USO and Parking Management office building, six bridge overpasses, new roadways, and reconstructed parking lots.
