Heathrow Air Traffic Control Tower
The top 30m of the tower – weighing 900 tonnes – was prefabricated on a remote site, just inside the boundary of the airport
The cab section was transported one and a half miles across site to its position overnight when the airport was not operational
The structure is made up of three main parts: the cab, mast supporting the cab and the base building
The mast houses all the services required for the control tower, including two lifts and a staircase
