Denver International Airport Terminal Building Roof
November 21, 2012 by staff
Denver International Airport Terminal Building Roof, Erected in 2003, The Denver International Airport Terminal roadway fabric roof structures provide translucent shading and weather protection to the multitude of passengers accessing a myriad of ground transportation options at this world-class airport. These two identical tensioned fabric structures are situated at the level-5 service vehicle pick-up area at the east and west sides of the famous Jeppesen Terminal. Contrasting the peaked appearance of the main terminal roof, Span Systems fulfilled the architect and owner’s desire to make an airfoil-shaped roof.
Each enclosure is approximately 100′ wide and 900′ long, covering a total area of nearly 180,000 sq ft. The fabric structures are made from Duraskin PTFE (Teflon®) coated fiberglass fabric from Verseidag Indutex and fabricated by Span Systems.
The steel supported structures are freestanding with over-hang walkway awnings connected to the terminal building. The fabric structures each consist of fourteen main panels, seven ridge vent panels and cantilevered end panels. The main panel structure is secured via catenary cables along the trusses. The ridge vent panels and the end bay panels are connected to the structural steel with continual clamping plates and specially designed aluminum extrusions.
This project received a 2005 Outstanding Achievement Award from the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) as well as other awards for the singular beauty of the tensile fabric structure.
