Stone Panels Used in McCarran Airport Construction

The Terminal 3 construction at the McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada has been completed and will be inaugurated in this summer as reported by E-Travel Blackboard. Stone Panels’ StoneLite panels were integrated on a large scale as it was the preferred building material.

Natural Stone Cladding Using Modern Technology

PGAL architects used 110,000 sq ft of StoneLite panels made of Gascogne Beige Limestone for the section of construction involving Stone Panels, which they supervised.

The architecture firm thought that it was appropriate to use Stone Panels’s natural stone fused panels of an open joint (rain screen) design for the exterior as well as the interior of McCarran's latest terminal. The green building material, StoneLite was one of the key reasons for achieving the LEED Certification of “energy efficient design".

The Terminal 3 at McCarran Airport spans three floors of about 1.9 million sq ft and is valued at $2.4 billion. For the Clark County and the airport, McCarran's Terminal 3 symbolizes a progression in efficient traffic flow, quality and capacity; in and out of Las Vegas. However for the builders on the project, the entire perspective is that it took resourceful building materials like StoneLite panels to assist in the conception of such a striking accessory to the McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada.
