Products from CEP Ceilings Ltd used to complete Manchester Airport’s new £20m control tower

The new £20 million air traffic control tower at Manchester Airport, designed by CPMG Architects, Nottingham, has officially been completed with the official opening taking place on the 75th anniversary of the airport.

Standing proud at 60 meters tall, making it the second tallest air traffic control tower in the UK. The new tower has 360-degree panoramic views around Greater Manchester and into Cheshire, and provides unrivalled views of the entire airfield operation from its new location.

The new control tower houses an approach radar and navigation section, surveillance and communications equipment while the base of the building houses new offices and an equipment centre. This multi function building had specific acoustic requirements and main contractors Morgan Sindall and sub-contractors Sound Interiors used a combination of products from CEP Ceilings ltd to ensure optimum sound quality whilst combining coloured tiles, curved trims and a colour matched ceiling grid to create a visually attractive environment.

Supplied from the company’s manufacturing site in Stafford, CEP Ceilings supplied ceiling tiles from their Cinema and Healthcare 100RH ranges.
