Last week we attended the official groundbreaking of the new air traffic control tower at Stinson Municipal Airport. As you may recall, back in 2015 HiWorks and Work5hop collaborated to enter a design competition for "improvements" to an already-designed air traffic control tower at Stinson Municipal Airport. We won and over the last year we have been working with AJT Engineering to finalize the design. That design was put out for bid, a contractor was selected and last Wednesday a groundbreaking ceremony was held.
In front of the airport's existing tower a ceremonial pile of dirt was prepared with an appropriate number of ceremonial shovels (see above). A cake was baked and Fiesta medals were distributed. When the ceremony was over the contractor removed the pile of dirt and began work at the actual site of the tower, some 2,100 feet to the southwest.
