BAM to deliver Visual Control Tower at Dublin Airport
Bunnik, the Netherlands, 8 December 2017 – The Irish Aviation Authority has awarded the construction of the new Visual Control Tower (VCT) at Dublin Airport to BAM Ireland, the Irish operating company of Royal BAM Group nv. The contract value is €27 million.
Designed by Dublin’s Scott Tallon Walker Architects, the new VCT comprises three separate but integrated building elements: the control cab and associated elements, the cab supporting shaft and a base building. The base building will accommodate staff facilities, electronic systems and mechanical plant space to provide control of the building environment. The overall height of the VCT structure will be 87 metres. Site works will include a new car park and a new security station.
Construction activities have already commenced. BAM Ireland expects to complete the project in early 2019.
