Features: Two-level, 250-car free-standing consolidated rental car storage parking facility.
Description: The consolidated rental car parking facility is located on the immediate north flank of the Yeager Airport’s John D. Rockefeller IV Terminal building. Immediate connection to the terminal baggage claim area and the rental agencies service counter is provided in concert with the vertical pedestrian elements. Enhanced rental car patron comfort is provided by a roof structure and enhanced lighting.
While serving the owner’s agent as parking consultant and structural engineer, DESMAN’s role included three phases: criteria document preparation and bidding, design phase monitoring, construction phase monitoring. Within these phases, DESMAN first gained the input of the on-airport rental car agencies and visited other consolidated rental car facilities to understand the high level of desired customer service and means to respond to that level of service. Secondly, DESMAN developed structural durability criteria for the garage designed for the climate of Charleston and provided structural and parking criteria provided as part of the design-build Request for Proposals. DESMAN also assisted in the review of proposals, design-builder selection, review of design, and review of construction.
