Those renting cars from the Salt Lake City International Airport will now be driving vehicles processed in the new remote service buildings and quick turn-around area.

Conrac Solutions, an operator of consolidated airport facilities, provided facility management services and activation strategy as part of the $1.8 billion Airport Terminal Redevelopment Program, according to the company.

Located north of the existing airport passenger parking lot, the new quick turn-around area features 64 fuel pumps with 75,000 gallons of storage and 14 car wash units, which recycles 85% of the water used.

The remote service buildings will be used for light vehicle maintenance such as oil changes, body repairs, and tire changes. All facilities total 502,000 square feet, according to Conrac Solutions. Rental car tenants include: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Firefly, Hertz, National, Payless, and Thrifty.

Conrac Solutions will be responsible for the safety and operational efficiency of the building in combination with negotiating contracts for more than 20 different services needed inside the center and managing fuel oversight, says the company.

“A successful activation has many facets,” said Anthony Criddle, Conrac Solutions’ vice president of operations. “From widespread priorities such as RAC employee training and procuring and soliciting vendor contracts, to granular details such as proper signage and building safety inspections, there are many moving pieces in successfully opening brand-new rental car facilities. Our industry experience and knowledgeable activation team allowed us to get the job done on time and under budget.”

Salt Lake City Airport’s Terminal Redevelopment Program began in July 2014 and was implemented to accommodate growing visitor traffic.
