SACOG Names Terminal B 2012 Regional Project of the Year
Sacramento International Airport’s Terminal B has received the 2012 Regional Project of the Year award from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG).
The SACOG honor is given to a project completed in 2011-2012 that has made a significant contribution to the region in transportation, air quality, and/or smart growth. The awards presentation will take place on December 6.
The $1.03 billion terminal modernization project offered a significant boost to the local economy and features several only-in-Sacramento restaurants and shops. The project was completed three months ahead of schedule and under budget, and was funded without tax dollars, relying on revenue bonds, user fees, and retained earnings.
Terminal B achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification for its environmental practices. It has received numerous other awards, including the national Richard A. Griesbach Award for overall excellence in concessions from the Airports Council International-North America; the 2012 American Council of Engineering Companies Golden State Award; and the California Transportation Foundation Aviation Project of the Year.
Sacramento County Airport System, a department of Sacramento County, is responsible for planning, developing, operating and maintaining four of the County’s airports: Sacramento International Airport, Executive Airport, Mather Airport and Franklin Field. The Airport System provides more than $4 billion in annual economic impact to the Sacramento region. For more information, visit sacramento.aero.
