Charleston International Airport Parking Garage

Project Overview

The new Charleston International Airport parking garage is an elegant work of architecture. It is also a 1.2-million square-foot testament to Baker Grit. The garage was designed to streamline the traveler experience while adding 3000 parking spaces to the fast-growing airport.

BCC co-workers in the Southeast territory built the concrete shell for the five-level structure, which included two helix ramps. The scope included excavation, forming, rebar installation, placing and finishing all concrete, and stripping forms for all foundations and elevated levels.

The Baker team placed all concrete at night to avoid extremely hot daytime temperatures. In addition, Baker co-workers had to overcome an auger cast pile deficiency, which held the team back by 45 days. Despite these challenges, the project was completed ahead of schedule, under budget, under man hours, and with zero recordable injuries for eight months straight.

The Charleston County Aviation Authority held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the facility in November.

The Roy Anderson Corporation was the general contractor for the project.
