Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport ConRAC

The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) identified the need to consolidate their rental car operations in response to the needs of the airport’s rental car agencies and optimizing the passenger experience. Early in the project, KLH worked closely with PGAL, the Architect of Record, in developing a detailed preliminary plan that examined the best construction delivery method to build the new complex. Once the Kenton County Airport Board determined that Construction Management at Risk was the best form of delivery, the design team began developing final plans for the $165-million project.

The new 1 million-square-foot consolidated rent-a-car (ConRAC) facility will include a customer service building connected to the main terminal that will house the rental car company customer service desks and offices. Phase I included the realignment of the main entrance roadway into the airport, as well as the relocation of all underground site utilities. The parking garage will include a ready/return area, quick turnaround facility, fueling stations and supporting amenities. Site modifications will also be made to accommodate the proposed structures including the roadway system and site utilities.

KLH provided full mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and technology design, as well as the design for the underground electrical utility services relocation. The facility is scheduled to be open in the fourth quarter of 2021.
