The O’Hare International Airport Multi-Modal Facility (Joint-Use Renatal Car + Public Parking Facility) consists of a 5-story parking facility (2.5 million sf) featuring 4,200 parking spaces for rental car parking, 2,700 public parking stalls, rental car counters and customer lobby, as well as a 3-story, 240,000 sf Quick Turn Around (QTA) facility including wash bays and fueling stations for the rental cars. Located on 33 acres with convenient access to the existing Metra Station and the new station for the extended Airport Transit System (ATS), the project included the new ATS station, ATS Maintenance and Storage facility, and ATS support building. The new multimodal facility relocates activities away from the Central Terminal reducing congestion. The project goals include LEED Silver certification and a rating of 3 of an available 5 airplanes under the Sustainable Airport Manual (SAM).

SINGH, as a sub-consultant to TranSystems, provided engineering design services for the new facility at O’Hare International Airport for the Chicago Department of Aviation. Delivered as a Design | Build project, the design was completed in two (2) phases. Phase1 of the project included the development of bridging documents that included concept plans, specifications, and design guidelines for the Multi-Modal Facility. Phase 2 included final design and the addition of the new airport transit system (ATS) station, the expansion of the existing ATS maintenance and storage facility building, an ATS Support building and the traction power substation. The project was build by a Joint Venture between Power Construction, Austin Commerical and UJAMAA Construction.

SINGH provided engineering design and construction inspection services including: electrical engineering, interior and exterior lighting design, power distribution design, communications systems design (connecting the new facility’s fire alarm system, parking and revenue control system, security system, public address system, and building automation system to O’Hare’s communications center), relocation of underground primary ductbank, and utility coordination.
