The Weitz Company has been selected by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) to complete the MCO Terminal C Multi-Modal Connector Pedestrian Bridge and Rental Car Lobby.
This design-build project will primarily focus on the construction of an approximately 450ft-long pedestrian walkway that is elevated, enclosed, and conditioned, and an adjacent rental car lobby area on the north side that will directly connect the new Terminal C with the existing multi-modal facility to serve up to four forms of passenger rail and all forms of public and private ground transportation.
The project will include rental car counters and queuing areas, multi-use information displays, interior landscaping, and preservation of all future capabilities for baggage rights-of-way and connection to future facilities and parking facilities.
“The Weitz Company’s Aviation Team is extremely excited to be selected for this project,” said Ben Bunge, Weitz director of aviation. “Our strong relationships have positioned this project for success, and we look forward to working with GOAA on this project as it continues working on its master plan.”
The Terminal C Multi-Modal Connector Pedestrian Bridge & Rental Car Lobby procurement and design will occur in 2023-2025. Construction will begin in 2023 and is expected to be completed in 2025. Upon completion, the project will provide accessibility for all individuals by including elevators, escalators, stairs, and four moving walkways – all compliant with the Americans and Disabilities Act. The newly built project will provide travellers with convenient access to Terminal C, the Train Station, and the Terminal Link people mover connected to the North Terminal and Parking Lot C.
The Weitz Company brings a one-team approach, with a design team including Rhodes + Brito, Ramski Interior Design, TLC Engineering, Base, and Avcon.
