Regional Turnaround Facility
Client: Hertz Corporation
Completion Date: 1986
For The Hertz Corporation, Tai Soo Kim Partners designed this Hartford/Springfield regional rental car and maintenance center at Bradley International Airport. In order to comply with FAA height restrictions on the site, we designed a triangular shaped 16,000 sq. ft. building with a stepped second story. The fast track construction was scheduled for winter months, so metal panels were selected for the exterior skin. Combined with a glass canopy shelter, the overall image created is dynamic, hi-tech and aeronautical. For this project, Tai Soo Kim Partners won the AIA / CSA Design Award.
