the vision that john establishes for the airport and you know we're standing in the intern broadly facilities b some facts it is a temporary facilities that allows set west to continue to operate we're offering 9 gates out of this facility and essentially building a 24 gate operation around this operation is a challenging and requires just most of our project team it will create a new lobby and consolidated checkpoint and improve the passerby experiences and the shopping and dining serving both broadly areas b and c to that leading edge of terminal experience worldwide a worldwide facility so interesting i think a key part of broadly b project the capacity to deal with international as well as domestic operations and so
11:35 pm
that's a tremendous benefit to give us the flexibility to continue to allow for the focusing efficient use of facilities and maximizing new flight and new aircraft types of that is part of our success over the recent past and also provide for post security cocaine activity between 4 of the broadly areas of the airport and in the near future we'll build between t-2 and 1940 t-3 that allows us assess through the broadly areas a tremendous thing for the passersby i think about the terminal program the benefit that provides for the communities and to our small businesses we're focused on local business participation a goal of 25 percent small local business participation and $300 million of the benefits through the contract wear estimating that will go to local
11:36 pm
and small businesses in the community and been so successful with the project approach and continue to use a pales in comparison approach with our teams we are in the midst feel having and have conceded $2 billion of work without a single claim and continues to deliver some such exceptional projects and lastly to turn back to sustainability if we will achieve lead gold certification and will make it zero ready so as we develop the renewables program given that leverage of a net zero facility with that, i want to thank the terminal one team and thank you all for being here. >> (clapping.) >> thank you now, please welcome the head of san mateo council shelly csa letter.

11:48 pm
and it looked a bus terminal so in that time i've been here 35 years a lot of improvements are made to this boarding area but ptz to see it replaced in the last 20 years we rebuilt the whole airport a new international terminal, bart to the airport, train system and new parking garages and terminal 2 that set a standard for arntsdz worldwide and being improvements in terminal 3 but to demolish boarding area b it was a great pleasure to lift this sledgehammer and tear that place down that was built in 1962 as a temporary structure so 74 years later getting to taking it down so we had to take a projects in
11:49 pm
a unique way strong finances steering wheel strong concession sales sfta from the san francisco concessions and that allows us to finance our own facilities we don't need third party's developers or ask the airlines to build facilities we insure the highest quality and maximize flexibility and maximize the gates and have new carriers to welcome virgin american and insuring they have the gates and able to welcome jet blue and southwest and had an extraordinarily high-level of k350e78s one of the highest exception levels in the country that means low fairs much lower
11:50 pm
fairs is more nights in the hotels in san francisco keeping this airport competitive is very important in our philosophy how and finance and control the airport is a key part an 1250er8d team in delivering the projects that i have been a leader on for 20 years delivering projects on schedule within budget not had a construction latitude over 20 years the envy of the public segment nationally and they look at our model how they should follow as well our model is based on partnering we embrace partnering and partnering with a construction industry and contractor, architecture e architect and engineers and construction managers and pales in comparison with the airlines our concession folks and other city departments
11:51 pm
and labor a key partner and that partnering is one of transparency, setting time and goals and insuring clear open consumption and that's what allows us to deliver exceptional projects not just projects on schedule and within budget but projects exceptional from a point of view we aim to surprise the passersby with a level of amenities and services that we deliver we did that in terminal two and confident the team will that here our i'm a review lose and get better i'm confident when i could be four years from now as as peering i'll have an steroid experience thank you all for being here today and really very satisfying for me as airport director after 35 years seeing
