A new era in Orange County air travel took flight recently with the first departures from John Wayne Airport's Terminal C, the newest passenger facility at the 73-year-old airfield and the centerpiece of a two year $543 million makeover.

Once the ticket counters in the shiny new terminal opened, it marked a major milestone in the airport improvement project that finished ahead of schedule and under budget. Airport officials contend the additional terminal, security checkpoint, state-of-the-art baggage claim area and an adjacent five-story, 2,200-space parking structure elevates the facility to world-class status for a midsize, regional airport.

Visually, the new terminal is similar in architecture and finish from the carpet to the tile and beige color palette. The 282,000-square-foot addition used three different Pecora product installations.

Contractors Jezowski & Markel and Spectra Co. shared responsibility in different aspects of the project. J&M used Pecora 300SL Self-Leveling Silicone Pavement Sealant for the Tarmac and Spectra tackled the Baggage Handling area with Pecora Dynapoxy Healer/Sealer, Dynatrol® II and Pecora-Deck 800 RVOC Series. The two combined for the Upper Walkway with J&M using Pecora Tempo 3000 Plus and Spectra utilizing Pecora-Deck 800 RVOC, Dynatred and Dynatrol® II.

"We love working with Pecora products. They are very consistent and predictable, and when you do high end decorative concrete that's a must," said Joseph Dean, VP of Construction at Jezowski & Markel Contractors, Inc.

An instrumental piece of the success of the project was Pecora's superior technical service. Services provided include installation training, product recommendations, submittal and technical documentation support, pre-project lab testing, as well as job site meetings with GC's, Architects, Engineers and Specialty Contractors. Tim Harris, Jr., Project Manager for Spectra Company, echoed Dean's statement and praised Pecora's support. "Pecora provided on-site assistance throughout the project to ensure it was successful."

Pecora's ability to provide quick turnaround for material delivery, installation training and attention to detail were key factors that contributed to the overall success of this impressive project. Great job by everyone involved!
