Project: Midfield Satellite Concourse, LAX
Location: Los Angeles
Architects: Corgan, Gensler, CannonDesign
Client: City of Los Angeles
The new Midfield Satellite Concourse (MSC) North was designed to improve operations, enable faster connections, and ease passenger access, all while providing state-of-the-art facilities. At the same time, the project had strict CALGreen sustainability and energy efficiency standards.
Complementing the ocean wave theme of the airport, the architects envisaged a stunning curvilinear roof. This unique design element additionally demanded specific roof and wall configuration requirements. To bring the vision into reality, the team needed insulation materials that could be custom fit to meet their curvature and design needs.
The design team at Corgan specified Atlas EnergyShield and ACFoam products due to their low VOC emissions and optimal performance. To ensure the Atlas products would meet the CALGreen requirements, both the wall and roof insulation solutions went through extensive GREENGUARD Gold testing.
“We were highly selective in the products we chose to bring this project to life,” said Jennifer Wehling, Sustainability Specialist at Corgan. “Having successfully worked with Atlas in the past, we were thankful for their willingness to go through the GREENGUARD Gold testing process.”
