Skanska For Kalamazoo/Battle Creek

ON DECEMBER 15, 2010, Skanska USA announced that its building business unit has been selected as general contractor for the new air traffic control tower at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport.
Atlanta, Georgia-based architecture firm Hartrampf will provide design services for the 167ft (50.9m) tower and the associated 20,100 sq ft (1,867m2) Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) centre.  The construction phase began in September 2010, with an expected completion in the first quarter of 2012.  At that time, the FAA will begin installation of all air traffic equipment, which is expected to take an additional 18 months.  The cost of the project is approximately $12.1 million.
