Everything under control

The elegant silhouette of the air traffic control tower is visible to Newcastle Airport’s more than five million passengers a year long before they actually arrive at the terminal. The X-TEND stainless steel mesh nestles like a delicate veil around the tower, where it forms a transparent skin and simultaneously keeps out the birds. A three-dimensional curved mesh was used to clad the tower over a total length of 71 metres and a height of eight storeys.
