  5. 5. ABIA-GTSA RELOCATION & RENOVATION 9300 Rental Car Lane, Austin, TX, 78719 LEEDv2009 New Construction & Major Renovations AWARDED LEED GOLD MARCH 2013 THE SUNLAND GROUP The relocation of ABIA Ground Transportation Staging Area (GTSA) involved the renovation of an existing rental car office/lot to provide a new and improved staging area for commercial ground transportation vehicles (taxis, limos, vans, etc.) and a convenience/break area for their drivers. This renovation project represents the alteration of an 11-year-old facility to a new occupancy type and function. Renovation of the existing 3,480 square foot car rental maintenance facility into a GTSA office and waiting area for drivers serving the airport terminal is a change from a Type B occupancy to a Type A3 occupancy. The building, bays and canopy were modified to create a new building with conditioned waiting space for 100 users, new restroom facilities, a single office, a storage/maintenance room, a new IDF room, and a vending area. In addition to main building modifications the adjacent site will include a space for quiet contemplation, a covered outdoor space for additional driver waiting, shading structures for some of the vehicle parking areas, and new site lighting and security. At the site exit a booth and canopy will be located for inspection of vehicles. The architectural scope of this project consists of three main components. The first component is to consolidate the building as one cohesive envelope and condition all interior space. The second component involves creating outdoor waiting areas or porches around the building and architecturally integrating it with an existing outdoor canopy towards the back of the building. The third and last component revolves around all the programmatic and technological requirements of the building.
