Example 3: GreenGirt CMH in Airports by Advanced Architectural Products
Airports are bustling and high-traffic environments that require durable and reliable construction materials. In a recent project involving LaGuardia Airport, in Queens, NY, A2P’s GreenGirt CMH sub-framing and SMARTci system proved to be a game-changer.
The airport required a lightweight yet robust solution to support the installation of large cladding panels along its façade. A2P’s GreenGirt CMH, with its unique composite and metal hybrid design, provided the perfect combination of strength and thermal efficiency.
By utilizing GreenGirt CMH and SMARTci systems as part of the building’s structural system, the airport achieved a sleek and modern aesthetic while meeting strict safety standards. The composite metal hybrid (CMH) material offered excellent load-bearing capabilities, ensuring the stability and integrity of the cladding panels even in high winds or seismic events.
Moreover, GreenGirt CMH’s resistance to corrosion and moisture made it an ideal choice for LaGuardia Airport’s coastal location, where exposure to saltwater and humidity can be significant challenges. The material’s durability guarantees a long lifespan, reducing maintenance and replacement costs over time.
With the successful implementation of GreenGirt CMH at LaGuardia Airport, A2P has demonstrated their commitment to providing innovative and reliable solutions tailored to the unique needs of the aviation industry.
Failure Isn’t an Option – Ensuring Structural Integrity
One distinguishing feature of A2P’s CMH products and materials is their unwavering commitment to structural integrity. By utilizing a single-source, job-specific engineering approach, A2P ensures that each component is designed and manufactured to exact specifications, eliminating any potential weaknesses or vulnerabilities.
Example 4: GreenGirt CMH in Sports Arenas by Advanced Architectural Products
Sports arenas demand materials that can withstand immense loads, vibrations, and unpredictable weather conditions. This is where GreenGirt CMH shines, providing optimal structural support while maintaining the architectural vision of the venue. Notable sports areas around the world have successfully implemented A2P’s GreenGirt CMH sub-framing and SMARTci systems to create iconic structures that impress both fans and athletes.
The Major League Soccer (MLS) Los Angeles Football Club Stadium, a world-renowned arena located in Los Angeles, CA, stands as a testament to the reliability and durability of GreenGirt CMH. The stadium’s unique design required a material that could bear the weight of massive cladding panels and roofing systems while ensuring the safety of spectators. By incorporating GreenGirt CMH and SMARTci systems into the stadium’s structural framework, A2P provided a solution that met the project’s requirements for strength, safety, and aesthetics.
FEA Review of Every Project
To further ensure the structural integrity of their materials, A2P conducts Finite Element Analysis (FEA) reviews for every job. This meticulous process involves using computer simulations to analyze and optimize the performance of each component, identifying any potential weaknesses or areas for improvement.
Example 5: GreenGirt CMH in Healthcare Facilities by Advanced Architectural Products
Healthcare facilities demand the highest level of precision and reliability when it comes to construction materials. In a recent project involving the expansion of a major hospital, SCL Health Denver West Hospital, in Denver, CO, A2P’s FEA review played a crucial role in ensuring the success of the implementation.
By conducting detailed analysis and simulations, A2P’s engineering team was able to fine-tune the design of the SMARTci system to meet the specific load requirements and environmental conditions of the hospital. The FEA review process provided valuable insights and reassurance to both the architects and builders involved, resulting in a secure and efficient construction process.
In conclusion, A2P’s GreenGirt CMH sub-framing and SMARTci systems have been successfully implemented in numerous real-world projects, demonstrating their effectiveness and versatility in different architectural settings.
