The steels for Bombardier Aviation's new 250,000 sq ft hangar are going up at London Biggin Hill airport. Robert Walters, commercial director, London Biggin Hill Airport says: “Construction of the hangar is continuing apace and it's fantastic that the steels are already being installed. The hangar will be able to house up to 14 Global 7500s at any one time and is a significant extension of Bombardier's European customer support network at Biggin Hill, reinforcing the airport's position as a leading aerospace hub.”
As well as a hangar, the facility will also comprise a workshop, office space and 650,000 sq ft of apron area and surrounds.
Walters continues: “We are delighted to be supporting Bombardier as it meets the growing demand for its services here, and the hangar's construction contributes towards our ambitious target of generating 2,300 jobs at the airport by 2030.”
