ABOUT BDL CONRAC PROJECT
The ConRAC at Bradley International is an integral part of the airport’s master plan. This project locates all rent-a-car companies on airport, with pedestrian access from the terminal. It incorporates retail operations with vehicle support and storage and creates efficiencies by allowing rent-a-car brand families to share common systems and resources.

This $210M project began in Nov. 2014, after Conrac Solutions Project Delivery (CS Project Delivery) was retained by 100 percent of the rent-a-car companies (RACs) at BDL. After financing successfully closed in April 2019, CS Project Delivery received Notice to Proceed to construct a new ConRAC at BDL in Windsor Locks, Connecticut.
