This light-filled, two-story, 12,000-square-foot center functions as the Reno-Stead Airport’s terminal for the 200 aircraft and tenants and as an emergency operations center for the Reno-Sparks community. The center provides an administrative office for the airport managers, a pilot’s lounge and a conference room for community use. Name the Freedom Flight Terminal, the facility is dedicated to U.S. veterans who have served in the armed forces.
As the CM at Risk, Q&D’s team worked alongside the airport staff, the construction representative and the design team to provide preconstruction feedback on various value engineering options, constructability, conceptual schedules and logistics plans. The end result of the entire team’s efforts is a project within the budget constraints which retains the character of the design intent and serves all the functions and needs of the community.
