  • 2. STRATEGIES AND RESULTS PROJECT PROFILE The new Air Traffic Control Center located at Pope Army Air Field is approximately 9,040 sf and consists of 11 stories (including the Cab Floor) plus Catwalk Level. The building includes two-story data/equipment rooms, a simulator bay located on the 1st floor, bathrooms/showers, locker room areas, administrative area, breakroom, ready room, training rooms, mechanical/electrical areas, mechanical chase, stairs and elevator. The project includes modifications to an existing parking lot to achieve adequate stand-off distance, connection sidewalks, landscaping, and fencing. Supporting utilities include gas, sewer, water, and underground electrical and communication services. The design compiled FAAandAir Force design criteria. The project also included the demolition of the existing tower and relocation of staff and existing equipment to the new tower once completed. Pope Field Air Traffic Control Tower Fayetteville, NC PROJECT BACKGROUND Architect: BRPH Contractor: Lifecycle Construction Services Engineer: BRPH Interiors: BRPH Client: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Project Size: 9,040 SF Project Cost: $7,461,785 The tower consolidates two formerly seperate facilities by co-locating a control tower simulator within the tower walls. The new tower boasts several upgrades over its predecessor including expanded square-footage, heightened visibility, improved environmental controls and a smaller ecological footprint. Many of the tower’s improvements stem from its “green” roots as a LEED Silver certified structure. The air traffic control tower includes many features to achieve this status. This project raked in many points by recycling more than 90 percent of the high-tech electronics from the old tower, LED lighting, motion-sensing light controls, electric car charging stations, and post-consumer construction materials increased the score. The facility also complied with stringent details from its landscaping to the materials used in its furniture and carpet, and the enhanced energy efficiency will save taxpayers money over time. ABOUT POPE FIELD AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL TOWER The air traffic control tower is located at Pope Field which is a U.S. military facility located 12 miles northwest of Fayetteville, North Carolina. Formerly known as Pope Air Force Base, the facility continues to be used by the United States Air Force but is now operated by the U.S. Army as part of Fort Bragg. The new tower replaces a tower built in the 1970’s. Updated technologies integrated into the new tower help improve communications, visibility, efficiency, and expands the capabilities at Fort Bragg and Pope Field. Pope Field’s air traffic control tower is run by 29 employees and operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Pope Field Gets‘Green’Control Tower ©2007U.S.GreenBuildingCouncil.
