Furthermore, a new air traffic control system designed to improve control of the entire air space over southern Germany will be in-stalled on a total of 15,000 sqm once the building is complete.

The work of an air traffic controller demands a great deal of concentration, therefore the main air traffic control room must be free from optical and acoustical distractions. Inside the room, all relevant information must flow unhindered and all the important processes be registered quickly. The doubleheight space which has no intermediate columns, lies at the centre of the new building and comprises of equipment rooms and offices. All areas of the floor are accessed by a continuous corridor running along the façade. The façade pilaster strips prevent distractions of radar signals.

Therefore spacious bright lo unges, meeting rooms and a roof terrace giving outside views and natural light are available and conveniently accessible.
