Steel design and construction for aircraft hangar
A major new hangar at London Oxford Airport, increasing total hangarage by 78%, is being erected by Caunton Engineering on a design and build contract.
Known as Hangar 14, it is the largest single facility to be built at the airport over the last five years and it will increase the airfield’s hangar space to 78,000m².
Main contractor for the project is Kier Marriott and work started on site during August 2010. The steel framed structure measures 120m by 37m and includes independent landside access, offices as well as car parking.
The three internal bays, all measuring 37m × 40m, have been designed to be big enough to accept Global Express or Gulfstream 550 business aircraft or typical regional airliners such as the BAe 146 or Dash-8 aircraft.
