Project Description

Alterations and refurbishment to existing buildings; the works were located “airside” at the south-east corner of the airport.

The works involved a full bay extension to existing hangar comprising of piled foundations, structural steel, cladding, hangar doors and mechanical and electrical installations.

The extension is on the southern side of the existing hangar and will bring the building to within four metres of the boundary fence.  Site access was via a temporary gate through the boundary fence off the Airport Road which required strict supervision, the works were carried out in a live environment on a congested site.
