Contracted to Weitz’s sister company, Contrack Watts, the new Consolidated Rental Car Facility (CONRAC) at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) in Honolulu, Hawaii, will significantly increase efficiency and security to better serve rental car companies and their customers.
To construct the 1.8-million-square-foot facility, the existing car rental buildings were demolished to make way for the five-level, cast-in-place concrete structure that will provide vehicular parking areas, rental agency areas, office spaces, car wash equipment and commercial fueling stations. In total, the CONRAC will include 2,250 parking stalls.
The 22-acre project is sequentially phased in Steps A, B and C. Step A is slated to be completed and ready for occupancy in December 2019. The entire project, which is aiming for LEED Silver certification, is estimated for completion in January 2022.
As part of the project’s pursuit of LEED Silver certification, multiple sustainable construction practices were implemented to gain points toward the certification:
To account for the 29 beam sizes on Step A and nine beam sizes that will follow on Step B, the project team has leveraged the GARAGEDECK system from PERI USA. This has improved efficiency by enabling work to be performed up to 16 feet high with a single leg while easily adjusting to the varying beam sizes.
