A local architecture firm has been awarded a $1.87 million contract for Memphis International Airport’s new consolidated rental car maintenance facility.


The Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority is relocating the airport’s rental car maintenance and storage facilities to the former ParkIt Here property at 3441 Airways Blvd.


The Crump Firm Inc. was selected to provide engineering services out of 13 competing firms.


The MSCAA bought ParkIt Here for about $1.6 million in 2013 as an opportunity to bring rental car facilities closer to the terminal.


The Crump Firm will design a facility with multiple maintenance bays and a shared parking lot of 1,000-plus spaces. The building will also consist of office areas, storage areas, a break room and restrooms.


The firm will survey the site to determine if the existing ParkIt Here facility will be reused in the design.


The contract is paid through Rental Car Customer Facility Charges funds.
