Bristow Helicopter Group approached Rubb to design and manufacture a fabric engineered helicopter hangar, tailor-made for the company’s needs.
During the process the structure grew from a 35m span x 35m long BVE into a 35m span x 40m long specialist helicopter hangar facility. This helicopter storage hangar required a high level of lighting specification, insulation and inner skin features and a custom-made insulated 20m x 6m manual sliding hangar door.
The high specification electrical system includes 230v and 415v power sockets; a 500 Lux lighting system; an independently monitored emergency lighting system; lightening protection and ventilation.
The helicopter hangar, which was completed in March 2010, is used to service, maintain and store Bristow Helicopter Group’s fleet of commercial helicopters.
“It was a real pleasure working with Rubb, and I cannot thank you enough for the excellent work that you have all put together for Bristow. The safety awareness, commitment, dedication and professionalism of the team have become the benchmark for other contractors we have engaged with on the base and for the airport as a whole and I thank you most sincerely for making this happen.”
