SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA — The San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport is proud to announce that its terminal development project team has won the John L.

Partners include general contractor Q&D Construction, design firm RS&H and construction manager Arcadis.

“We offer our heartiest congratulations to the San Luis Obispo Airport team for winning the John L.

The honor is well-earned.”

“It’s wonderful to be recognized for our teamwork,” followed Kevin Bumen, C.M., C.A.E., Director of Airports. “The airport and its partners started with a single goal—to create the best possible terminal for our guests—and our commitment to that goal, and each other, never wavered. For two years, every step was taken together, and the result is a project we are all immensely proud of.”

Construction on the project began in 2015 and the terminal opened in October 2017. At a final cost of $39.5 million, the project came in on time and on budget.
