SACRAMENTO, CA, May 18, 2020 – Aeroterm, a leading owner and developer of on-airport cargo facilities, announced today the completion of a new Class A, 40,500 square foot facility at Sacramento International Airport (SMF). The facility is fully leased and will now transition to cargo operations.
“We are proud to serve as the developer of this exciting and high-profile cargo infrastructure project which enhances the airport’s air cargo sector with improved cargo processing efficiency,” said Greg Russell, Vice President of Investments for Aeroterm. “From ground break to completion we were able to deliver this project to market in six months, which is the result of true teamwork and collaboration between Aeroterm, the Sacramento County Department of Airports and the air cargo community.”
The new facility has been built to Aeroterm’s corporate LEED standards with the intention of being awarded the prestigious LEED Silver Certification. With sustainability as a focus, the design implements practical and measurable strategies aimed at achieving high performance in water savings & energy efficiency. The building includes features such as daylighting, insulated metal wall panels, LED warehouse lights with occupancy sensors, low-flow water fixtures, and high volume, large diameter fans. The facility also includes 17 landside dock doors and will be used for airside to landside cargo operations
“We’re excited to reach this project milestone with Aeroterm,” said Cindy Nichol, Sacramento County Airports Director. “This new facility is a great addition to the cargo program at Sacramento International Airport.”
“Our development and construction teams worked with excellent partners at the airport and within the community to navigate these unprecedented times to deliver a sustainable, first class facility that supports the needs of the Sacramento community,” said David Rose, Managing Director and Senior Fund Manager for Aeroterm. “The team’s nimble use of on-site advanced technology with more thoughtful support from our local contractors allowed us to limit headcount at the site, in turn enabling us to prioritize worker health and safety while delivering the project on time and under budget, which is a great testament to our partnership with the Sacramento County Department of Airports.”
