Project Name: The New Salt Lake City Airport Location: Salt Lake City, Utah Architect: HOK, San Francisco, CA System: Storefront and Partition Walls Construction: 2018-2020
Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) serves more than 24 million passengers a year in facilities constructed 50 years ago to handle half as many travelers. SLC is now a hub airport with many flights arriving and departing around the same time. Security needs are vastly different from when the airport was originally constructed and buildings no longer meet earthquake safety standards. In short, though the existing facilities have served the airport well, it’s time to make way for the next generation of airport design.
The new terminal will have state-of-the-art functionality and ease-of-use. For example, most up and down movements via escalators and elevators will be eliminated, making the terminal easier and quicker to navigate.
The new terminal will eliminate airplane-parking bottlenecks and allow airlines to get their planes back in the air more quickly, which means fewer delays for passengers. A single terminal will eliminate redundant facilities for passenger check-in, security screening and baggage claim.
For this project Rainscreen Solutions LLC received in 2018 contract to provide shop, fabrication drawings for interior glass and partition walls.
