Construction on Los Angeles International Airport’s 6.3-million-square-foot Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility (ConRAC) continued in the fourth quarter 2021. As of now, the ConRAC facility is 77% complete, according to Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA). A time-lapse video displays the progress made in 2021.
Over the summer, LAX ConRAC Partners made more progress at the site of the future ConRAC facility. According to LAWA, completed tasks include concrete pours for the north and south speed ramps, continued installation of solar panels on the Ready Return building, continued construction of ramps connecting the Ready Return/Idle Storage and Quick Turn Around buildings, and installations of elevators and escalators.
In first quarter of 2022, expected projects on the ConRAC include:
- Continued construction for the customer service buildings on the top level of the Ready Return building.
- Installation of the exterior façade coverings on the Ready Return/Idle Storage buildings will be completed.
- Construction of the ramps connecting the Ready Return/Idle Storage buildings will be completed.
- Continued interior fit-out of the Ready Return/Idle Storage and Quick Turn Around buildings.
The facility is one of the major components of LAX’s $5.5 billion Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP), which will improve access to LAX, provide new pick-up/drop-off options for travelers, and provide the long-awaited connection to regional transportation.
