AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL TOWER AT DUBLIN AIRPORT
The location of the new facility is within the demise of the current air traffic control facilities at Dublin Airport. The site and the surrounding area is generally level with sparse, low level development adjacent. The height of the new structure will ensure that it will become a significant feature on the Dublin skyline and an essential part of the Brief is to provide an elegant, modern structure, identifiable with the professionalism of the Client organization, that will become a worthy symbol for Dublin, Ireland’s gateway city.
The 87-metre high tower, which will be built at the same time as the €320m new runway project, is expected to take 18 months to construct.
The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) has told prospective bidders that it expects to award a contract later this year.
