A Towering Achievement: An infographic on the building blocks of the Lanseria ATNS Tower by Cottle& Bergh

Pretoria, 19 June 2018: Cottle& Bergh Architect’s detailed infographic showcases the time, work and materials that played an instrumental role in realizing the vision and construction of the new air traffic control tower and fire station at Lanseria international airport.

As part of a joint venture with Delta Built Environment Consultants, C+B provided the design and required architectural documentation for the new air traffic control tower and fire station at Lanseria international airport. “The C+B team were thrilled to work on the projects the new tower and fire station not only improves on the existing day to day airport activities, but the design allows for future expansion as well,” says Reinhardt van Solms, Architect at C+B.

This infographic below indicated the scale of the project and just how much was involved in turning C+B’s design into a building that allows its inhabitants to effortlessly carry out their day to day tasks. The control tower plays a vital role in the everyday workings of an airport and the decision to replace the existing control tower with a new one was taken by the airport to accommodate the extended runway. The new tower height, location and design allow the occupants a greatly enhanced view across the entire airport precinct. The integration of the new air traffic control tower with the fire station and the new offices of the South African Weather Services will also result in shorter reaction times to any possible emergency and improve the overall safety of the airport.
