The new Terminal 3 at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, Nev., opened June 27, 2012. The $2.4-billion project, which began in 2005, will function for both domestic and international flights. The terminal, which is 1.9 million square feet and three stories tall, adds 14 new gates as well as 16 baggage carousels.

One of the key building materials for the project was StoneLite® panels from Stone Panels, Inc., which were used on both exterior and interior applications in the new terminal, and were of an open joint (rain screen) design. Las Vegas-based PGAL architects oversaw the construction, which included 110,000 square feet of Gascogne Beige Limestone StoneLite panels.

McCarran Airport welcomes about 40 million visitors to Las Vegas each year and is expected to see more due to the expansion and growth provided by the new terminal.

"Relocating some domestic airlines to Terminal 3 will improve our customers' airport experience by enabling us to ease peak-period congestion within Terminal 1's departures roadways, ticketing lobby, baggage claim and passenger pick-up areas," said Randall H. Walker, Clark County director of aviation.
