Sundt Completes New Airport Administration Building for SAN

 |  Press Release


San Diego, Calif. (Dec. 6, 2023) – Sundt completed construction of a new design-build airport administration building for San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (SDCRAA) last month.

“Sundt has been completing projects at San Diego International Airport for over a decade now, and our past experience helped ensure a smooth and successful delivery of the new airport administration building,” said Brad Kirsch, Sundt project director. “The entire project team was focused on the building’s mission critical purpose, and that helped drive team alignment and successful collaboration among Sundt, HOK, the Airport Authority and our trade partners.”

Sundt constructed the new four-story, 130,000-square-foot building for the Airport Authority administrative offices, Airport Operations Center, and Emergency Operations Center. The previous administration building for SDCRAA, housed in the old commuter terminal, needs to be demolished to make room for SAN’s New Terminal 1 project. To accomplish this, the Sundt design-build team took the new airport administration building from initial design documents to completion and occupancy in less than 27 months for an on time and on budget delivery.

The design-build project required a seamless transition of airport operations and emergency operations, which Sundt successfully coordinated through extensive collaboration and planning with the Airport Authority, HOK and the extended consultant design team, and its trade partners.

Sundt’s work at the San Diego International Airport began with the award-winning Terminal 2 Landside Improvements project, completed in 2013. Sundt has more than 70 years of project experience throughout the state of California and has offices in San Diego, Irvine, and Sacramento. In San Diego, the firm is working on multiple projects for San Diego Unified School District and is beginning a new project at the San Diego State University, Brawley campus.
