Vero Beach Air Traffic Control Tower and Base Building

Project Overview

This Air Traffic Control Tower is composed of an 81-foot precast concrete tower shaft and a steel-framed, glass-enclosed cab. With a total height of 100 feet, the tower is grounded by a 3,400-square-foot base building and a 450-square-foot emergency generator building. Both the tower and support building are complete with electrical, plumbing, elevator, HVAC, and life-safety systems. Landscaping, irrigation, and a parking lot were also part of the scope of work.

The Vero Beach Municipal Airport handles approximately 37 percent of the region's aircrafts and landings, and it stayed operational during construction. The issued bid documents for this project allowed a 22-month construction schedule, but a precast subcontractor’s suggestion to double the precast module height effectively cut the onsite precast erection duration in half. This resulted in a two-month decrease to the overall construction schedule and related cost savings for the client.
