Rental Car Facility (ConRAC) at Fresno-Yosemite International Airport (FAT)
As part of the prime architecture and engineering team for this eco-conscious rental car program at Fresno-Yosemite International Airport, PGAL provided programming, planning, conceptual design, and tenant improvement requirements.
The ConRAC accommodates 400 ready/return stalls and includes 11 acres of new and exclusive-use service and maintenance sites for FAT’s eight operating rental car agencies.
The ready/return area is conveniently located in close proximity to the baggage claim area and renovated retail counters within the terminal, and the covered pedestrian walkways and vehicle spaces protect customers from the California central valley heat.
The new quick turnaround areas (QTAs) provide for 800 storage vehicles, plus expansion capability for an additional 400 vehicles.
In the planning and design process, PGAL took advantage of a developer-led solar program that generates four megawatts of available power for the airport.
PGAL determined the project’s affordability based on current rental car and local construction markets, integration of sustainable design practices, and incorporation of a blast wall that provides airfield protection during high security threat levels.
