“Apollo” Valves vital role in ORD Terminal 5

takes immense pride in the products playing a pivotal role in diverse projects that contribute to the betterment of communities and industries. One such recent accomplishment is the collaboration with Autumn Construction Services in their remarkable endeavor at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

Autumn Construction Services embarked on a mission to enhance the heating systems and controls at ORD Terminal 5, catering to passenger comfort, airline operations, and concessions. Under the umbrella of the ORD 21 Terminal 5 Expansion and Modernization program, this project was not just an upgrade, but a leap towards a more efficient and modern airport experience. The scope encompassed terminal and concourse hold rooms, gate areas, airline operational zones, and concessions spaces.

The challenge was twofold: meticulously itemizing the equipment slated for replacement and executing the project within a 20-month schedule while minimizing disturbances to passengers and airport operations. It was a high-stakes scenario, requiring precision, expertise, and innovative solutions.

Central to the success of the mechanical upgrades were Apollo Valves’ cutting-edge products. In a project of this scale, where the replacement of existing components was paramount, the top-notch Variable Air Volume (VAV) boxes, piping systems, and temperature control valves played a crucial role.

Autumn Construction Services tackled the project head-on by replacing over 350 existing VAV boxes alongside piping and controls. The intricacy of this task demanded products that combine reliability, efficiency, and adaptability. The VAV boxes proved to be the perfect fit, ensuring optimal airflow control and temperature regulation for diverse spaces within the terminal.
