Construction of Air Traffic Control Tower

Construction of a new Air Traffic Control Tower directly in the heart of Destin Florida; a project that redefines the Destin skyline and will bring a decade of preparation to completion. The SOW includes 39 auger cast pilings at 45-ft and 65-ft depths, concrete tilt-wall construction with weights up to 90 tons, steel erection at six stories in the air, new light beacon, wetland dredge and fill and impact mitigation, highly technical air traffic control systems and ALCMS control lighting, bores for electrical, communications and water, as well as a federally specified 3,500-ft asphalt access roadway, new security fencing, and key card access control systems for the facility.
This project received an award in recognition of outstanding achievements in airport aesthetics, safety, and service in the state of Florida.
