Portland International Airport Rental Car Quick-Turnaround Facility

Project
Rental Car Quick-Turnaround (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

The facility combines the City of Portland standard flow-through planter and infiltration basin details,...Learn more
