North Weald Airfield

Essex, United Kingdom

Rubb has supplied a custom-designed solution for the National Police Air Service, situated in North Weald Airfield.

 

The 40m span x 42m long BVL will provide cover for police aircraft, and is fully relocatable if necessary. Easy access for aircraft is provided by a bespoke sliding door system, with pedestrian access to the sides.

 

The hangar features Rubb’s durable steel framework, which is hot dip galvanized to protect from corrosion.  The frame is fully covered with a high tenacity, flame retardant PVC-coated polyester fabric, which has a life expectancy of up to 25 years. The PVC cladding features two contrasting tones: blue walls, with a white roof.

 

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.

 

This is not the first time Rubb has supplied NPAS with a hangar, as a similar solution was completed for Doncaster in 2017.

 

Rubb was thrilled to continue this relationship with NPAS, especially with the chance to work somewhere with so much historical significance and importance to the local area. During WW2, the airfield was known as RAF North Weald and proved instrumental in the Battle of Britain. Today, North Weald connects people across England, as well as having destinations abroad.
