DIALOG Designs Edmonton International Airport (EIA) Office and Control Tower

25 August, 2014

-By Erinn Waldo


Edmonton, Alberta–based DIALOG has completed a combined office and control tower project at the Edmonton International Airport. The project was an integral part of the Edmonton International Airport’s 2012 expansion program, responding to increasing ridership and the pressure it had placed on the existing infrastructure and buildings.

               

The tower, built atop an existing terminal, houses a new cutting-edge NAV Canada air traffic control tower, an expanded retail precinct, and new administrative offices. The design seeks to better connect and engage passengers with views to airside operations, to minimize the impact of increasing ridership on terminal operations, and to provide a healthy indoor environment for travelers and staff.

                

Inspired by the Alberta winds, the design vision for the project was to create a memorable first and last impression for the city. The tower was also specifically designed to fit naturally within the context of high grass and snow on the surrounding fields. Sculptural zinc cladding, as well as optimal solar orientation, allows maximum natural daylight in the winter and shading in the summer.


              

The project is targeting LEED Silver designation, as it also incorporates rainwater harvesting and under-floor air distribution.
