Visual Control Rooms

ABP is an internationally recognised leader in the design, manufacture and construction of Visual Control Rooms (VCRs).

With over 40 years experience, the company has led the way in developing new safety features for this critical environment. These products and associated features have been internationally accepted as significant improvements to the operating efficiency of air traffic control, with consequent improvements in VCR safety.

High Quality Design

Using specialised, in-house design and engineering capabilities, ABP has developed a complete portfolio of products to ensure delivery of a best in class environment for VCR personnel and equipment.

As well as the comprehensive product portfolio, ABP is a recognised leader in design and construction and has a full understanding of the need to respond to specific environments and customer requirements.

All new designs are computer modelled and partially pre-assembled at an ABP factory using the highest quality components and minimising actual site installation time. As a result, all VCRs are delivered fully engineered, built to very tight tolerances and with factory standards of quality control thus minimising ongoing maintenance costs.


With a proven track record of innovation and extensive research and development ABP was the first company to develop and build a Hi-Vision cantilever control room which gives a 240° unobstructed vision. The company also developed Sonarview glass to meet the demanding technical standards required for VCR glazing such as freedom from condensation and icing, sound attenuation, solar control, glare and reflections.

End to End Delivery

ABP has the full range of skills and experience required to take full responsibility for the end to end delivery of VCRs. Although there are a number of basic VCR patterns, each installation is different. The ABP design portfolio ranges from small airfield control rooms to the largest international airports and the skilled design team is experienced in modifying basic designs to accommodate bespoke requirements such as irregular and asymmetric shapes.

ABPs’ own site installation team has wide experience gained over many years in rapid installation techniques for VCRs thus ensuring on time delivery within agreed budget.
