Mark Albertine, President & CEO

OpenAire is the world’s leading designer, manufacturer and installer of custom retractable roof enclosures and operable skylights. OpenAire has completed nearly 1,000 projects since 1989. We work with owners, operators, architects, developers and more to design the perfect solution for any project of any size or scope. Our retractable buildings go beyond traditional construction, creating and transforming facilities into light-filled, completely unforgettable spaces that customers love being in.

Main products and services
OpenAire custom-designs breathtaking retractable roofs, enclosures, skylights, and facades that offer the best of both worlds: the shelter and security of an indoor space, combined with the vibrant sunshine and fresh air of the outdoors. We give venues a complete solution – creating thermally broken aluminium structures and enclosures, as well as providing design, engineering, fabrication, installation and many other services from start to finish.

Additional products
OpenAire is a hands-on partner who works with clients from initial concept planning through to construction and up to opening day. Our team of highly qualified experts and network of industry peers can be as involved as needed to support the scope of each project and client team.

OpenAire enclosures bring owners year-round usability, increased attendance and low energy costs. Our retractable roofs let in the sunshine and fresh air of the outdoors and also keep out the cold and inclement weather. This gives owners 100% usability, 365 days a year, which allows expanded programming and attracts large numbers of new guests. The natural light and ventilation saves facilities up to 27% on annual energy costs, creating greater sustainability and ROI for venues of all sizes.

Key customers
OpenAire creates unique designs for waterparks, hotels, resorts, municipalities, aquatic centers, entertainment centers, cruise ships, shopping malls, restaurants, as well as developers and architects around the globe.

Where in the world?
We have completed nearly 1,000 projects throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, Azerbaijan, Russia, the Republic of Georgia, the United Arab Emirates, and Ukraine.

Plans for 2018
2018 will be another year of growth for OpenAire. We continue to attract new clients and have many projects around the world lined up in the coming year. We are adding new and creative designs/tailor-made options for our clients, including new concepts for operable walls and roofs at increasingly larger scales. The future looks exciting as OpenAire engineers developing new technologies. These options will allow entire walls to open widely, giving us even more freedom in developing structures.

DEAL, Dubai, UAE; EAS, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; WWA, Las Vegas, USA; IAAPA, Orlando, USA; Big 5, Dubai, UAE.

What the clients say
“We expected that [with visitor growth], in year three or four of our proforma we could get to $2 million in day passes,” says John Shelton, VP Sales and Marketing at Zehnder’s Splash Village in Frankenmuth, MI, “We were able to do that in the first year of opening.”
