The air traffic control centre in Kastrup was built for Civil Aviation Administration Denmark and is used to control the airspace over Denmark.
Staircases and walkways are made of stainless steel with a ground surface. Wood has been used to cover the steps and in handrails.
In order to meet amended fire protection requirements and avoid costly treatment with fire paint, the design had to be changed along the way. The walkway steel has been dimensioned to meet the requirements without expensive treatment.
Walkways and staircases are suspended from the roof structure, resulting in a light and almost floating visual effect.
The solution was implemented in collaboration with Arkitekterne Andresen A/S.
