In 2010, Sacramento International Airport (SMF) completed an expansion program dramatically changing the nature of air travel for the region. Passenger arrivals, departures and material handling are processed in separate, discreet facilities, for efficiency and security.
The Remote Central Receiving Facility (RCRF) handles and distributes all of these materials arriving at the airport. “Landside” materials destined for hotels, offices, ticketing are separated and distributed. “Airside” materials pass through a special TSA screening area prior to distribution. The processing and storage wings of the RCRF feature precast concrete walls topped with Kalwall translucent panels for generous natural lighting in the work areas.
Dreyfuss + Blackford has been involved in all stages of development and expansion at the Sacramento International Airport, from the Master Plan, Terminal B buildings, Terminal A, through this expansion, in preparation for Central Terminal B.
