McCarran International Airport: Terminal 3

Located just five miles south of Las Vegas’ central business district, McCarran International Airport is one of the 20 busiest airports in the world. This $676 million terminal addition adds 14 new aircraft gates (seven international and seven domestic), bringing McCarran’s total to 110 gates. Terminal 3 was the largest public works project in the state of Nevada at the time of its completion.

Entrance ways into Terminal 3 are oriented to allow natural lighting within the building perimeter. Facade elements include louvers that are incorporated on the east, west and south elevations as a design feature to further maximize daylighting.

Enclos provided design-assist and construction for 85,700 square feet of custom curtainwall, windows and sloped glazing, to go along with 65,900 square feet of interior storefronts, doors and glass wall panels. The scope of work included considerations for facade security and blast resistant performance requirements.
