Preferred team picked for LAX rent-a-car scheme

Los Angeles World Airports has picked its recommended team to design, build, finance, operate and maintain a new consolidated rent-a-car (ConRAC) facility.

LAWA has initiated the first agreement with LA Gateway Partners (LAGP) as the recommended developer, setting in motion the path towards full contract approval by BOAC and the Los Angeles City Council. LAGP is led by Equity Members Fengate Capital Management, PCL Investments USA and MVI Finance. The lead contractor is PCL Construction Services. The design is being led by PGAL and AC Martin Partners. The Lead O&M Provider is Johnson Controls while the quick turn around manager is MVI Field Services. Key Engineers are Kimley-Horn & Associates, Englekirk Institutional and Robert & Company.

The ConRAC will be built using a public-private partnership (P3) contracting model. LAGP will be designing and constructing the facility and will also be responsible for operating and maintaining it for a 28-year period.  

The facility is intended to create an easier and more reliable way for customers to rent and return cars at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). It is a major component of the Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP), which also includes the automated people mover (APM) system, Intermodal Transportation Facility - West and associated roadway improvements. It will consolidate over 20 various rental car locations in and around the airport into one facility located adjacent to the 405 freeway. The facility will be connected to the APM.

LAGP’s proposal had the lowest price score and second-highest technical score of the four teams that participated in the procurement process. LAWA will present a 28-year contract to the BOAC and City Council for approval in the coming months.

BOAC approved an early works agreement with LAGP, for a not-to-exceed amount of US$5m, which will allow pre-construction activities such as hiring, soil testing, engineering and furthering design of the ConRAC. The aim is to complete the project in 2023.

"This was a very competitive process that brought out strong proposals from all four teams who bid for the project,” said Sean Burton, president, LAWA BOAC. “The ConRAC is an important piece of infrastructure that will not only serve our visitors who use rental cars but will benefit everyone by helping us deliver on our crucial goal of significantly reducing traffic on roadways in and around LAX.”
