Chicago O’Hare International Airport
A great addition to the Chicago skyline, this 76 meter (250 ft) high tower prominently features CS Louvers on much of the exterior surface. CS was very proactive throughout the design and installation process, working closely with the installer on the custom louver attachment. This unique attachment allows for lateral and rotational adjustment of the louvers giving them the appearance of seamlessly floating away from the structure.
O’Hare’s extensive modernization program involved a reconfiguration of the airport’s runways, as well as the addition of a new runway, to substantially reduce flight delays at this major international hub. This new runway is serviced by the North Air Traffic Control Tower (NATCT) and the associated support buildings.See full case study
