CBC commissioned to restore Australia’s oldest control tower

Continuing its affiliation with the air navigation services industry, Illawarra-based facilities management company, CBC Group were recently awarded the building works for internal and external remediation of the Parafield Control Tower, Adelaide.

The control tower was built between 1938 and 1940 during World War II and, as of 2008, the Parafield Control Tower is the oldest operational tower in Australia. Similar buildings were constructed at Mascot in Sydney and Archerfield in Brisbane, and although they still stand, they are no longer used as control towers.

The Parafield facility has also been used as an operations-administration building and passenger terminal and consists of the original 3-storey building constructed in the 1940’s and the add-on tower constructed in 1980. The original 3-storey building was also modified during the redevelopment in 1980.

Today, only the upper floor and tower cab are occupied by Airservices Australia. The remainder of the building is occupied by tenants including the Adelaide Flight Training Centre. The building is no longer used as a passenger terminal.

Due to the age of the structure, water leakage, movement, cracks and deterioration has become an increasing issue in multiple sections of the structure. CBC has been contracted to undertake remediation works consisting of:
– render replacement,
– roof-top waterproofing,
– internal wall and ceiling lining replacements.

Commenting on this unique project, Josh Ryan, CBC’s Group Operations Manager explains, “it’s a real show of confidence from Airservices Australia in our craftsmanship to be responsible for remediation type work in an important historical building. While we are known for facilities maintenance type work, we are proud of our experience and passion as tradesman. All the senior management team are qualified builders, so we get a real buzz out of taking on projects like the Parafield Airport restoration.”
