PDX Rental Car Quick Turn-Around Facility

Project
Rental Car Quick Turn-Around (QTA) facilities are an innovative—and still fairly unusual—building type, with only about dozen in the country. A successful QTA facility efficiently and safely fuels and cleans rental cars to meet the current demands of airport customers, while being able to accommodate future growth. They are logistically complicated projects that require an in-depth understanding of traffic flow, operational function, airport safety protocol, and fueling. For Portland International Airport’s new QTA facility, Mackenzie was able to efficiently address these aspects, and in a...Learn more

Waste Management Maintenance Facility

Project
Mackenzie provided architecture and engineering services for this maintenance facility located on 7.3 acres in Spokane Valley, Washington. The 22,700 SF pre-fabricated steel building includes 9,300 SF of office space across two stories and 13,400 SF of maintenance/wash bays. The project received LEED Gold certification in 2009. Contributing to a LEED credit for heat island reduction, truck parking is entirely of concrete, which will be more durable and reflect light. In addition, stormwater on the site is contained and treated through on-site bioswales, detention ponds, and dry wells.Learn more

B Street Trail

Project
This 3/4-mile trail is a critical link in Forest Grove’s citywide trail system, providing a connection between downtown and the regional multi-use trail that skirts the city, which will eventually join the Portland metro area to Haag Lake and beyond. Mackenzie’s landscape architecture group served as the prime consultant in the planning, design, documentation, and construction observation of the project, with in-house civil and structural engineering and planning assisting in the effort. Pacific Habitat Services provided natural resource consulting, including wetland delineation, joint permit...Learn more

Wings & Waves Waterpark

Project
This innovative, one-of-a-kind indoor water park is the latest addition to the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum complex, a regional recreational and educational destination. The 70,000 SF water park features pools, waterslides, a wave pool, and interactive exhibits to teach visitors about relevant science concepts, such as velocity and buoyancy. The facility’s centerpiece is a Boeing 747 airliner mounted above the water park roof that serves as the starting point for the four waterslides. The project demanded an integrated approach spanning architecture, engineering, aquatic facilities...Learn more
