See Smart Windows Improve Ene


MISSOULA, Mont. and MILPITAS, Calif., May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — View, Inc. ( VIEW)the leader in smart building technologies, continues its expansion into the aviation sector, announcing that its smart windows have been installed in the new South Concourse terminal expansion project at Missoula Montana Airport (MSO).

Scheduled to open in early June, the new terminal features five new gates to accommodate record growth in the number of passengers visiting the region’s seven wilderness areas and blue trout fishing rivers. View Smart Windows is a key part of MSO’s expansion project, which aims to reduce the airport’s carbon footprint and establish MSO as Montana’s flagship airport. Windows use artificial intelligence to automatically adapt to outside conditions, providing continuous views of the surrounding Missoula Valley and the Northern Rockies while blocking heat and glare to optimize passenger comfort and reduce fuel consumption lighting and HVAC energy savings by up to 20%.

“MSO is the gateway to western Montana, and we wanted the new terminal to showcase the spectacular natural beauty of the area,” said airport assistant manager Tim Damrow. “View Smart Windows helps us deliver a truly state-of-the-art, energy-efficient facility enclosed in floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views.”

In a study on natural light and airport experience, passengers who boarded at the gates with View Smart Windows were 68% more likely to report a higher satisfaction rating and rated the airport as 33% more modern, efficient, bright and comfortable. A similar daylight and views study found that door seats with View Smart Windows were 15 degrees cooler than those with traditional windows, helping passengers stay comfortable and allowing them to spend more time and money in airport restaurants, bars and shops.

“MSO recognizes that the airports of the future will be designed to measurably improve the passenger experience and improve facility operations,” said Kristi Crase, chief strategy officer, Aviation at View. “Airports across the country are rapidly adopting View’s smart building technology, and we’re thrilled to partner with MSO to transform Western Montana’s largest airport into a destination unto itself.

MSO is part of a growing list of airports across the country with View Smart Windows, including Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), San Francisco International Airport (SFO), New York Airport LaGuardia (LGA), Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), Seattle-Tacoma (SEA), Memphis International Airport (MEM), Spokane International Airport (GEG), and the recently announced facility at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN).
