Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
The Silver Ramp Transit Center Terminal 1 Lindbergh parking expansion at Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport provides 5,000 parking spots and four stories dedicated to rental car companies allowing for short- and long-term expansion of rental car operations. Glass enclosed elevator shafts and strategic floor openings bring daylight into the underground passageways where connections are made to the people mover and LRT station. Lower-level spaces are flooded with natural daylight through Kawneer’s 2500 UT Unitwall® System and 1600UT Wall System®1 Curtain Wall. Additional systems used include 1600 Wall System®1 Curtain Wall, Trifab® VersaGlaze® 451 Framing System and 500 Standard Entrances. The systems provided a thermally efficient barrier between interior and exterior temperatures in the cool Minnesota climate. Kawneer Collaborative worked closely with the architects, customers and builders to help bring the project to life.
Kawneer Collaborative was established to offer a premium experience to a select audience, creating exciting possibilities in the vast building construction project space.
