Jet Aviation - Biggin Hill Airport

The refurbishment of a 1946 Aircraft Hangar at Biggin Hill Airport proved to be one of the more interesting projects of 2001 due to it being unusual. The existing hangar framework was, in the main, in reasonable condition although it had suffered from various stages of corrosion over it's life.


Our main involvement as engineers was in the installation of new taller, sliding doors at each end where we were required to provide the design and details of the new support framework.



New offices, links and workshops were to be erected at the side of the hangar consisting of prefabricated framework. The presence of very high shrinkage clay and the proximity of trees , enforced the use of deep strip or pad foundations and ground beams.
