Layton left its mark on the Phoenix landscape when it completed construction on the largest structure in the state: the Rental Center at Sky Harbor International Airport. Located on a 140-acre site west of the airport, the Rental Center is now home to all 12 airport rental car companies.
The Consolidated Car Rental Facility is 2,300,000 SF and has a footprint of just over 40 acres. Not only is it the largest covered structure in the state, the facility is one of the largest rental car centers in the nation. The four-story facility has three levels of parking with 7,400 stalls. There are also 12 cast-in place ramps, one for each rental company, and vehicle servicing areas on site.
The fourth level of the structure is a 160,000 SF customer service lobby, with rental car counter locations for the 12 rental car agencies. The lobby, finished with terazzo tile, venetian plaster, ceramic tile and slate, uses natural light to highlight local artwork.
Layton teamed with another contractor to complete this massive project, one that will surely be appreciated by visitors to Sky Harbor International Airport for years to come.
