San Luis Obispo Airport New Terminal

San Luis Obispo Regional Airport has a new terminal! Q&D is the builder on the design-bid-build $27,500,000 project, working alongside SLO Airport, San Luis Obispo County and design team leader RS&H.  The new terminal replaced an existing aging and non-compliant facility and was designed to accommodate economic growth and increased tourism in the County, to further connect the community with major metropolitan areas and to continue to service the Cal Poly university campus.

The new terminal project, a two-building, 56,000-square-foot facility, includes: ticketing lobby, baggage claim, passenger and baggage screening, toilet rooms, administration offices, support areas, waiting lounges and boarding areas as well as site improvements and airport apron construction.

Throughout the project, the project team was setup in co-located construction trailers with the architect, construction manager, inspector, County, and Q&D personnel all together under one set of rooves. This promoted a collaborative environment and helped the Q&D team quickly and accurately work through over 200 plan revisions and 1000 request for information submittals on this design-bid-build project. The Q&D team valued the importance of the client’s schedule and accomplished these changes and completed the project on time with the original schedule. The revisions Q&D proposed, such as lime treatment for existing soils and a redesign on constructability issues, saved the client $400,000 on their project.

“I have heard from numerous passengers and visitors about how impressed they are with the new terminal. You and your teams are to be commended for the extraordinary cooperation and teamwork that made all of this happen.”

-Kevin Bumen, Director of Airports at San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport
