The new single terminal for the KCI Airport called for a large-scale garage to be built in connection with the terminal, and it was no small job. This 6,148 stall garage was constructed using 4,358 pieces of total precast, requiring over 1.8 million sq ft of double tees. Additionally, the feature wall along the speed ramp and elevated roadway were made up of thousands of architectural blackouts.
The project from award to erection was completed in an impressive 23 months. The garage was built with a speed ramp on the exterior, ensuring quick access to all floors. This was an important feature that allowed the new terminal to run efficiently and serve the airport’s growing customer base.
The end result was a state of the art garage that was strong, efficient, and reliable. It was built with the highest quality materials, built to last, and designed to stand up to the elements and demands of the airport. The finished product is a testament to the quality, precision, and craftsmanship of the project team.
