In April 1983, the U.S. Army Air Traffic Control Activity requested the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory to develop a prototype concept design for a Type IIIa Air Traffic Control Tower ATCT. The design was to be for a prefabricated, modular, and transportable building system that could be fabricated, placed in storage, deployed, and erected in a variety of configurations. This report documents the development of functional requirements for the Type IIIa ATCT, as well as considerations for its prefabrication, transportation, and erection. The report also presents the prototype concept design for the Type IIIa ATCT. The design includes architectural drawings as well as descriptions of the building systems construction approach and materials. Information needed to acquire these facilities is presented, including recommendations for a One-Step or Two-Step procurement approach and guidance to Corps personnel for executing this approach. Finally, the report provides an outline for bid documentation, including an outline specification for the building system.
