View Unveils Smart Window Installations at O’Hare Terminal 5 Expansion
View, Inc, a leader in smart building technologies, unveiled its new extensive Smart Windows installation this week at the recently completed 350,000-square-foot expansion of Terminal 5 at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The Terminal 5 expansion includes several new gates and two new lounges with View Smart Windows.
“This project sets the standard for sustainable, passenger-centric airport design,” said Dr. Piers MacNaughton, VP of institutional business at View Inc. “We are proud to contribute to O’Hare’s sustainability initiatives and make a good first impression of Chicago for the millions of passengers that travel through Terminal 5 each year.”
View Smart Windows use artificial intelligence to optimize the amount of natural light in the terminal while minimizing heat and glare, to provide a more comfortable and healthier environment for passengers. In addition, smart windows reduce energy consumption by lowering cooling loads, the company said.
