RIC – RAC BAGGAGE CLAIM EXPANSION

Mechanical, electrical and plumbing system design is underway for a 20,000 SF, two story addition on the north end of the terminal and expansion of the baggage claim area. The two story addition includes a new elevator and will connect both levels of the terminal to the existing rental car garage. The baggage claim expansion increases office and counter space for the rental car agencies. The mechanical system includes two new air handling units with gas phase filtration and an energy recovery wheel for the office area. Long runs of exposed spiral double wall ductwork, using interior orifice plates for balancing, will be featured in the large open spaces of the connector. The electrical design includes lighting, power, and data for the relocated rental car agencies. Construction of this project will begin late 2017.
