This week, we can’t help but look at the past and see how far we have come. As WINGSPAN renovations are coming to an end in the fall of this year, we continue to look ahead. A lot has progressed since we first began WINGSPAN, but then again a lot has remained the same.
One thing that hasn’t changed is keeping the environment a top priority. The WINGSPAN program has incorporated long-term sustainability into the renovations, which includes:
- Solar-Heated Water
- Rain Water Harvesting
- Regional Materials
- Day Lighting System
- Automation System
Today GSP offers all of these eco-friendly renovations and we couldn’t be happier. Along with keeping the airport sustainable includes adding water bottle filling stations. About a year or so into the program, GSP started working on adding water bottle filling stations to address the airport liquids ban that requires travelers to discard beverages before passing through the security checkpoint, and the environmental issue of disposable plastic water bottles thrown in the trash daily. Today these water bottle filling stations are being used daily by our passengers.
So, in case you missed our sustainability efforts, we are here to keep you updated. Stay tuned for more updates and as always, safe travels.
