Valencia Airport Control Tower
Service: Detailed Design and Construction Supervision
Client: Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea (AENA)
Period: 1997 – 1998
The Valencia Airport control tower was constructed in 1958, and consists of a four-story vertical communication core, with an interior staircase, an elevator, control room, technical offices, and control tower hall. The project provided renovation and repairs to such items as small cracks on the concrete shaft, serious sealing problems in the carpentry, leaks from water infiltration on terraces, metallic oxidation, and lack of drainage surrounding the tower. It also ensured compliance with fire regulations in the new tower.
