LCI served as the landscape architect for the terminal and other project segments in 1990. In 2006, LCI was fortunate to be selected as landscape architect for the new Terminal C, Parking Structure C, Central Plant, and MacArthur Entry. LCI worked under three separate contracts to develop plans, specifications and estimates for the new terminal ‘C’ and parking structure and worked with the County of Orange to prepare bridging documents for the Central Plant design-build package. The project design goals were to extend and update the existing landscape theme. This included relocating existing palm trees and supplementing the plant palette with a variety of drought tolerant species.
LCI prepared landscape PS&E for runway hydroseed and erosion control, streetscape design, and terminal landscape design for all interior planter/feature areas of this project. This was the first Airport terminal to utilize Baggage Claim carousels as planters. The open design of the terminal allows landscape materials to receive light and air for survival. However, ‘preserved palms’ were used in entry courts to ensure lifecycle. Portable planters were also used in departure areas to allow for flexibility.
