Regional Intermodal Transportation Center at Hollywood Burbank Airport (Burbank, CA)
Hollywood Burbank Airport (formerly Burbank Bob Hope Airport), owned by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority (BGPAA), is the only area airport with a direct rail connection to Los Angeles. The BGPAA engaged STV in joint venture with gkkworks to provide program management and construction management services for the development of a new Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC) and a new 1,043-space, five-level valet parking structure.
The RITC is a three-level structure housing a consolidated rental car facility; a rental car customer service building; and a ground-level bus station. It is connected to the airport terminal building via a 1,100-foot-long, covered elevated walkway with automated moving walkways. Designed to be fully operational after a major earthquake, the RITC will have the capacity to serve as a command center for emergency operations in Southern California. The rental car facility’s floor-to-floor height is 19 feet, compared to 14 feet for a normal rental car facility. This will allow emergency agencies to drive their vehicles throughout most of the first floor. In case the electrical connection to the facility is disrupted, there’s an emergency generator which can be refuelled as needed to maintain power.
The five-level valet parking structure is a 190,000-sf, post-tensioned concrete structure.
