The Truckee Tahoe Airport (TRK) in California, hosted a ground breaking Friday, Aug. 20, for its replacement administration building project.
The project involves relocating existing self-serve fueling facilities for aircraft, parking, and construction of an 11,500-square-foot administration and terminal building. Construction is expected to take 14 months. The existing terminal building will be demolished upon completion of the new facility, according to airport officials. Total project cost is $7.5 million. The project has been designed to LEED Silver equivalent standards.
The new facility will replace the current building, which is nearly 50 years old. It will incorporate a café, lounges, meeting rooms, flight planning area and district offices. A modern UNICOM facility will provide views of the ramp and airfield, further enhancing operational safety at the airport. A large public area adjacent to the building will provide a park-like area for picnics and airplane watching.
