Air Traffic Control Tower’s
Our experience in designing Air Traffic Control Towers is best represented in the Sydney and Broome towers.
The Sydney ATC is a dramatic symbol of the Sydney international Airport. The innovative design comprises the main cabin atop the six pods of the clover leaf shaped deck. This deck comprises technical rooms and staff amenities. The access lift sits adjacent the main central support with a dramatic spiral shaped escape stair unfurling through the steel rod bracing. Ancillary facilities are located in the base building including staff amenities, management offices, plant and equipment rooms.

The Broome ATC integrates the main ATC functions with a fire station. The design also recognises the visual prominence of the facility, which will stand as a backdrop to the airport and become an important marker to Broome for the many who arrive by air. For economy and rapidity of construction, colorbond cladding was selected for the majority of the built form. The roof is a striated canopy over the functions below. At lower levels, the doors and intermediate walls are in a deep red hue, selected to be analogous to the red ochre coloured soil of the region.
