$48.5 Million Parking Structure at John Wayne Airport is Braced for the Future

Recently featured in the March-April issue of Airport Improvement Magazine, the John Wayne Airport parking structure was built by our own Swinerton Builders Orange County division.

 

"The new five-level, 725,000-square-foot parking structure at John Wayne Airport (SNA) in Tustin, CA, is noteworthy not only for its size, but also for its design. The $48.5 million Terminal C facility is one of the first concrete parking structures in the country to employ buckling restrained brace (BRB) technology - a valuable feature in earthquake-prone Southern California.

 

The parking project was a traditional design-bid-build process, with Walker Parking Consultants hired in 2007 to design the structure and Swinerton Builders coming on board as general contractor in June 2009."
