A Speedy and Modern Retrofit with EXTECH’s LIGHTWALL 3440
Project: Boston Logan International Airport HangarsLocation: Boston, MA

Architect: Fennick McCredie Architecture

System: LIGHTWALL 3440

Originally constructed with metal panel walls and steel-sash glass windows, the New England winters and harsh aviation environment had taken a brutal toll on the buildings. The project called for glazing materials that could withstand the location while delivering good thermal performance, optimal daylighting, and long-term savings on energy costs.  It also demanded a speedy installation so flight schedules were impacted as little as possible Read more
