The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has contracted Archer Western Construction, LLC (Walsh Group) based in Chicago to build a new $40.9 million air traffic control tower for Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO) in Greensboro.

There will be a 550-sq. ft. tower cab and a 15,650 sq. ft. base building anchoring the structure, the FAA said in a statement.

The base building also will include administrative offices and a training classroom. Construction will begin in early 2019, and the FAA expects to commission the facility in early 2022.

The new structure will replace the existing 90-foot-tall tower that has been in operation since 1974.
