Hangar in place to support NPAS at Doncaster

A bespoke new air base featuring a Rubb aircraft hangar is taking shape for the National Police Air Service, Doncaster.

The steel framed, fabric clad aviation structure measures 40.1m wide x 46.25m long and features a sliding door measuring 30m wide by 5m high.

Additional modular buildings have been fitted to right and rear of the building and include a number of offices and amenities. Rubb was tasked with ensuring the Rubb hangar connected effectively to the modular structures and that they were correctly positioned to allow a clear viewing area and access to the hangar.

Rubb worked with main contractor Kier Services to deliver the hangar for Doncaster NPAS.

Sales Manager Andy Knox said: “This project went very smoothly from start to finish. Rubb and Kier had a good working synergy and we made positive progress throughout the process, from initial enquiry and design, to manufacture and construction.”

NPAS provides air support to the 43 police forces of England and Wales from a network of 15 bases. NPAS helps keep communities safe by providing a 24/7/365 borderless service, in which the tasks posing the highest risk to communities are prioritised in line with local police and crime plans.
