With almost $2 billion on the line, a modern airport needed modern recycling and trash receptacles.
When ordinary wouldn’t do for this modern airport, DeepStream’s modern trash and recycling bins allowed the project’s designers to integrate recycling into more areas to support the Orlando Aviation Authority’s continued focus on Sustainability.
Florida’s newest and most modern airport will also be its most bold and dynamic in the spirit of Orlando, home to world class theme parks. Modern trash and recycling receptacles by DeepStream have been chosen for Orlando International Airport’s South Terminal.
Designers chose DeepStream’s modern combination recycling receptacle and trash bin with 3form Varia Thatch resin panels. 3form makes an almost unlimited pallet of textures, colors, and materials to combine into unique decorative panels that wipe clean. The Varia Thatch that designers chose uses natural thatch set into clear and colored resin panels.
“The design goal for the South Terminal Complex is to create the next generation of The Orlando Experience™ by using large gestures that will create an unforgettable experience,” according to Fentress Architects.
Currently under construction and scheduled to open in 2021, it will be a decidedly modern airport. The $1.8-billion project includes a world class terminal building, ticketing, security, and 16 gates. The terminal’s 1,000-foot long boulevard features an innovative skylight that diffuses natural light throughout the space.
Several civic spaces along the boulevard enhance the passenger experience by providing comfortable seating, shopping, and a new state-of-the-art media experience. The project also has several indoor and outdoor courtyards with plants and trees creating a more sustainable terminal building.
Connecting the existing airport’s 4 terminals, connected by trains to the central hub, with the new South Terminal and future high speed Virgin Rail to Miami is the the Intermodal Terminal facility. It was completed in 2017 and already is fitted out with many of DeepStream’s receptacles on casters for mobility.
As the first stage of the new South Airport Complex, the 500,000 square foot facility consists of a dual-platform, 4-track passenger rail system, an automated people mover (APM) connecting the South Airport Complex with the existing North Terminal Complex, and accommodations to accept future commuter rail, and light rail modes.
Alongside the four rail types coming into this modern airport facility, a ground transportation component integrated into the building serves bus, taxi, limo and public transit modes, as well as a public drop-off curb for passengers.
The Intermodal Terminal Facility is connected via SkyBridge to a new 2,400 car garage, with designed expansion capability of reaching 5,000 cars to serve the future South Terminal Complex.
DeepStream’s commitment to the principles of Sustainable Design makes it the world’s most adaptable modern trash and recycling receptacle, and perfect for this modern airport. Unique trademark marine anodized extruded aircraft aluminum legs are the key to our design.
Replaceable captured panels slip into the legs and are joined by an open aluminum frame to hold the rugged leak proof recycled plastic inner bins. The open inner support frame leaves no place for waste or pests to hide. The frame also acts as a bomb-proof base to attach casters for mobility.
The lids are sanitary 16-gauge 316 stainless steel that will never wear out and is easily cleaned and refinished. All parts are replaceable at manufacturer’s direct cost, and we back each receptacle with a Lifetime Structural Warranty.
DeepStream plants 100 trees for every bin purchased through the excellent program run by Trees for the Future. The order for Orlando’s modern airport Intermodal Terminal alone planted a respectable forest grove of 4,600 trees. These trees will help absorb carbon, give off oxygen, and cool the earth, while providing employment and food for the participants in this grassroots environmental program.
