Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Nigeria

The construction of Kano International Airport’s new air traffic control room required a swift, value engineered solution.



MV8-50 air traffic control room

  • Year: 2010
  • Height: 28m
  • Shape: Octagonal
  • Floor Area: 52.5 m²
  • Scope: Air traffic control room

The project constraints leant toward one of our modular air traffic control rooms that is delivered in kit form and then either installed by client resource with our project management or fulfilled by TEX ATC as a turnkey service. Our MV8-50 was selected, offering a floor area of 52.5 m² (565 ft²) and comfortably supporting up to 7 operator positions.

Kano Airport’s VCR installation was project managed by TEX ATC using client resource and was completed within 6 weeks from its arrival at site.

The MV8-50 is a modular octagonal structure with each facet having a 15-degree outward inclination to reduce internal reflection, glare and solar gain. The VCR comprises 8 slimline columns with an integrated ring beam and permits either steel or concrete interface. This interface method allows for a uniform distribution of load to the supporting structure, further reducing the limitations imposed upon the project architects and engineers in their design considerations.

MV8s are available in 3 sizes and provide a high-quality solution for new or existing smaller airports.
