Posted 2 June 2017 · Add Comment

EasyJet's Hangar 9 is now ready to support intensive MRO schedules at Gatwick Airport, following a rapid design and build project which was completed in just six months by Rubb.



EasyJet selected Rubb Buildings Ltd to design, manufacture and construct their new top-flight hangar facility at Gatwick and Rubb has provided a twin span hangar measuring 91.5m wide x 60m long. The structure measures 9.2m to the eaves and 16.8m to apex of each span. Each front gable measures 45.7m wide and features a 41m wide x 13.5m vertical lifting fabric door.

The hot dip galvanised steel frame is clad with 150mm thick Thermohall insulated fabric, providing a U Value of 0.25 W/m2K. The process included fitting 8,700m² of PVC membrane. This structure is located at Gatwick Airport, near London, UK.

The facility provides 5200sq m of usable working floor space. A full LED lighting system, ventilation system and LPG heating system has also been installed.



To complete the build, two sets of vertical lifting ‘Megadoor' hangar doors were fitted to allow access to the two-bay facility. The hangar is complimented by a 550sqm external logistics and office building.

Brendan McConnellogue, easyJet's Head of Maintenance, commented: "The Rubb team who worked on site were absolutely first class. The successful delivery of this project, which has been challenging both in terms of scale and its timeline, is another example of what can be achieved through easyJet's innovative and lean approach, not only meeting a tight timeline, but also creating strong sustainable partnerships to deliver market leading operational performance."

Rubb will be highlighting innovative aircraft hangars, MRO facilities and some exciting new projects at the British-Irish Airports Expo 2017 from June 7-8 at the Birmingham NEC, Marston Green, Birmingham, UK.
