New Dublin Control Tower Timelapse Video
The Dublin Airport Control Tower is required to facilitate parallel runway operations at Dublin airport and to ensure appropriate visibility of runways manoeuvring and apron areas. The new facility will be ready for current runway operations during the first half of 2020 and will be ready to facilitate parallel runway operations by 2021 when the Northern parallel runway is introduced at Dublin Airport. The new tower is 86.9-metre-high and during construction required over 11,000 tonnes of concrete and 300 tonnes of structural steel. The crane used to build the tower stood at 100 metres tall and following completion now becomes the tallest occupied building in Ireland.
