Mineta San Jose International Airport
San Jose, CA
This project involved the modernization and replacement of the airport’s terminal facilities, including the transformation of Terminal A and construction of Terminal B and Terminal B concourse that replaced Terminal C. Terminal A: The construction on Terminal A allowed for a longer curb for departing passengers to unload. The security checkpoint was also expanded. Terminal A also houses new restaurants and shops. Terminal B: This beautiful new terminal replaced Terminal C and connects with the North Concourse to provide ticketing, baggage claim, and security functions. The facility also includes new inline baggage screening systems for greater efficiency for airlines, passengers, and TSA operations. Using Terminal B instead of installing temporary equipment in Terminal C helped the airport reduce the overall construction cost of their modernization program. This project also included a 7-deck rental car garage. The new structure is across the road from the new Terminal B and has 3,000 spaces for rental car companies.
