Grand Forks Air Force Base – Air Traffic Control Tower and Radar Approach Control

Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota

Design-build bridging documents were developed for this collocated 118-foot tall air traffic control tower and two-story, 11,000 SF radar approach control center for Grand Forks Air Force Base. The scope included assessment of existing facilities and operations, developing the requirements document, programming, conceptual design, as well as limited drawings, design-build specifications, and follow-on oversight during the final design for this project. The facility is equipped with cab simulation, five active radar positions, and two training positions, computer-based instruction, administrative offices, and duty-ready break rooms.
