Airport project update
Despite the recent atrocious weather conditions, work is continuing a pace on the Airport Control Tower.
We have excavated and formed the foundations to the main operations building and tower using over 1000 tonnes of concrete.
Work is currently progressing in forming the concrete columns and walls from ground to first floor and the formwork is now in progress for the first floor slab which will be poured in the next few weeks.
The columns and wall from the first floor to the roof will then be formed with the steelwork to the roof arriving in March. The roof and cladding works to the main operations building will then take place.
The main stem of the tower was formed using the Slipform method working 24 hour shifts for 5 days and nights finishing on time. The structural scaffold is now being erected which will be used to help form the concrete walls, slabs and 16 fins that form the structure that will eventually shape the tower.
Once the concrete works are finished, the VCR (Visual Control Room) will be made and lifted into place, with the rain screen aluminium cladding taking place around the same time.
