The ATCT functions as both a flight operations facility as well as a training facility with a tower simulator in the cab. The Radar Approach Control (RAPCON) functions include IFR operations and training. The 136 foot tower is supported on a deep pile foundation with the "shaft" constructed of precast insulated wall panels. The two-story building is supported on a shallow, cast-in-place concrete foundation with structural exterior framing. The Terracon team performed geotechnical evaluation and construction materials testing throughout the duration of the project.
