REID architecture's iconic tower for the UK's fastest growing airport nears completion
The 57m high tower is located landside on a main access road and demanded both an iconic and secure design. To meet the constraints of the tight, compact site and security issues, REID architecture has combined the base building with the tower. This has led to a much stronger form visually; a very low site take with minimum footprint; and an enhanced structural integrity in an economic building. The circular plate is an extremely efficient plan form, which creates the maximum floor area requiring the minimum amount of wall cladding.
The tower is due to be operational later this year.
