Air Traffic Control & Base Building Facility - Executive Airport, Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Pond is providing full design services for the construction of a new air traffic control tower (ATCT) and base building at the Ft. Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE). These services include architectural, structural, civil, mechanical, electrical, communications and fire protection engineering. Cab floor will be at 87.00 ft AGL. Project includes a 6,900 sf base building.

The new ATCT and base building will be constructed adjacent to the existing ATCT and base building facility. In order to make room on the site for the new facility, an existing fire station on the site will be demolished. The construction cannot impede operation of the existing tower while also maintaining vehicle and pedestrian traffic to the existing facility. After the new ATCT and base building are constructed, a switch-over period will take place in which the traffic control equipment will be installed in the new ATCT. Once fully functional, the existing ATCT and base building will be demolished.

In order to provide the new ATCT with communications, an airfield cabling package will be provided that will illustrate how the new ATCT cabling will splice into the existing copper loop for the current ATCT.

An asbestos, lead-based paint (LBP), and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) survey was conducted for each of the facilities that are slated for demolition.
