Walsh Crews Document Critical Pick of Steel-Framed ATCT Cab
Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington - Walsh crews document the critical pick of the steel framed cab that sits atop the new air traffic control tower at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The successful operation was the result of months of planning and an unwavering commitment to jobsite safety.
"The pick itself could not have gone better; it went very fluidly," said Project Manager Ryan Duckworth. "Ironman did a great job QCing all the connection points on the cab; they handled it great. At the end of the day it was an excellent effort and we're proud of what we all achieved."
Walsh's Seattle Regional Office is performing the construction of the 7,650 square-foot tower, plus a 5,600-square-foot support building, and installing lighting, paving, parking, sidewalks, storm/sewer systems, landscaping and signage. The facilities are being designed and constructed to achieve a minimum life of 50 years and LEED Silver certification. The air traffic control tower is anticipated to be operational by Spring 2017.
