Project Overview: New Salt Lake International Airport
Posted on Oct 20, 2020 by Paul Christiansen
I recently had my first opportunity to travel through the New Salt Lake International Airport, which opened on September 15th, 2020. The previous airport was more than 50 years old, and was intended to serve half as many travelers as it was now doing.
It was time for an upgrade, with bigger and more efficient facilities that could serve over 26 million travelers a year. Although there is a 50K+ sq. ft. 3D canyon-like mural, new shops and restaurants, as well as new security equipment, it was the Krueger DPL Drum Louver Grilles that caught my eye!
LONG’s Colorado and Utah Sales team worked together to secure the first two phases of this multi-year, $4.1B project. Our Air Distribution lines are well represented in the facility, including the following product lines:
Krueger: Grilles, Registers, Diffusers, VAV boxes and Trench Heaters
Ruskin: Fire Smoke Dampers, Control Dampers, and Louvers
Loren Cook: Supply and Exhaust ventilators
Armstrong: Vertical Inline Pumps
Superior Radiant: Infrared Space Heaters
Runtal: Radiant Baseboard Panels
Overall, LONG secured $2.7M of Air Distribution equipment on the project, meeting an expeditious construction timeline, as the opening date was pulled up due to limited travelers during the COVID epidemic. On your next trip to or through Salt Lake City, you will enjoy the new airport and the thermal comfort that LONG and our partners delivered!
