Restructuring of Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH, DFS, and centralisation of
air traffic control in northern and eastern Germany at the Bremen DFS site
required a complete change of use and extension of the existing facilities. The
first construction stage comprises the extension of the central operations
room.


DFS (German air traffic control services)
Bremen, Germany
The first construction stage comprises the extension of the central operations
room. The concept behind was to provide a glare-free room illuminated by
diffuse daylight, unlike the dark rooms usually used as workplace for air
traffic controllers. For this purpose, an existing, transversal steel frame
structure was stilted, the entire façade wall of which consists of bent glass
provided with a curtain lamellar screen.




During the second construction stage, existing facilities will be altered and
extended. The old operations room will be docked with the new one and
updated accordingly through the introduction of daylight illumination. A
completely new canteen will be created in the centre of the building in the
form of a glass-covered inner courtyard. Building work will be carried out
without interrupting daily operation.


Construction period: 1st construction stage 1998 - 2000
