Australian Aerospace Hangar

Hangar facility with two-storey office

This prohect entailed the construction of a 5,500-square-metre EADS Tiger Helicopter Hangar for Australian Aerospace. The facility was initially required for assembling Tiger Helicopters for the Australian Defence Force, with future plans to use it for the maintenance of larger aircraft.

The hangar required a column-free 62-metre span to allow for clear access and movement of the helicopters. The steel framework was assembled on the ground with the engineered design of a post tensioned structure.

The facility included the construction of a two-storey office and amenities building and the redevelopment of existing carpark.
