A cornerstone project for our team, was the completion of the 9-level covered parking garage located near the arrivals terminal at ORF. The parking garage covers 1.15 million square feet, and SBBCC is proud to have been awarded and completed the $31 million project. SBBCC self-performed all the concrete work for this project. The parking garage has over 2,900 short and long-term parking spaces and accommodations for over 300 rental cars located on eight levels. The parking spaces were completed to be able to facilitate round-the-clock security monitoring systems.
With ORF being owned by and spread over 1,300 acres in the City of Norfolk and operated by Norfolk Airport Authority, our knowledge on the definite and successful methods for completing the design and construction of parking facilities is infinite. S.B. Ballard Construction delivered this high-quality project safely, on-time, and within budget.
When you find the Norfolk International Airport Arrivals terminal which houses baggage claim and car rentals, you will find this attached +3,200 space parking garage. At completion, it roughly doubled the size of the terminal complex, the number of garage parking spaces and amount of curbside parking. It was the airport’s biggest expansion project since 1974.
The garage, because it’s attached to the terminal building, has heightened security.
This project included the construction of a new 9-level, 1,150,000 square foot, 3,205 parking space cast-in-place concrete, post-tensioned concrete parking structure. The parking structure incorporates long-term and short-term parking, and a Rent-A-Car pick up facility. The ground floor accommodates 315 ready-for-rental cars. The parking spaces were completed to be able to facilitate round-the-clock security monitoring systems.
This garage includes a double-threaded vehicular circulation helix, auger-cast pile foundations, architectural pre-cast concrete spandrel facade, plumbing and electrical work. Site work included excavation, connecting roadways, parking, traffic control, utility relocation work, storm water management and landscaping work.
The garage drainage system is a series of rain leaders comprised of 8” and 6” cast iron pipe all connected to a central under slab drainage system of 12” and 14” PVC pipe. All storm water runoff is then fed into a series of oil water separators prior to being dumped into the BMP, which eventually dumps into a series of lakes at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens.
