Panel wall system upgrades thermal efficiency at Birmingham Airport
Undergoing a $201.6 million terminal modernization project, the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport in Alabama’s largest city has improved its building envelope with the ACCEL-E steel thermal-efficient panel wall system. Manufactured by Pittsburgh-based Syntheon, the wall panels are a lightweight, high-performance solution that shortens construction time and improves energy efficiency by combining the performance of cold-formed steel framing with the insulation properties of expandable polystyrene. The ACCEL-E installation accounts for 106,000 sf of wall space for a new concourse at the airport.
