The work on the Icelandic Air Traffic Control Centre in good progress

The work on the Air Traffic Control Centre at Reykjavik airport is under way. The building is a concrete building erected in 1992. The building is divided into an air traffic control hall in the centre with a lower building surrounding it. The roof over the air traffic control hall is curved and sits higher than the roof of the surrounding building.

The project consists of replacing the vapour barrier on the outside of the walls from the roof of the taller building to approximately one meter below the roof of the lower building and connect it there to the outside wall of the building. A cladding of sound absorbing material will be laid on top of the vapour barrier layer. In addition to this the vapour barrier of the curved roof will be replaced from above.

The roof cladding must be removed as well as the wooden frame, asphalt cloth, plywood and insulation. A new layer of plywood will then be laid on top of a laminated wood frame and a sandwich roof of asphalt cloth and insulation laid on top.

Project finish is estimated to be in the middle of the summer.
