Driven by oil-related industry, business is booming in Williston, North Dakota. So much so that the airport could no longer keep up with the surge in travel to the region.
In designing the new 110,000-square-foot terminal building for Williston Basin International Airport, Alliance Architects sought a low-maintenance, durable cladding that could withstand the harsh northern winters. Metal emerged as the material of choice and was specified in a number of styles, types, and locations including insulated metal panels (IMPs), single-skin, and corrugated panels.
The façade’s colors blend into the surrounding prairie landscape, stratified limestone of the Missouri River, and the area’s industrial mines.
MCA member companies CENTRIA and Kingspan earned a Metal Construction Association Chairman’s Award in the industrial category, which evaluated the project based upon overall appearance, significance of metal in the project, innovative use of metal, and the role of metal in achieving project objectives."
