Leading airline EasyJet selected Rubb Buildings Ltd to design, manufacture and construct their new top-flight hangar facility at Gatwick Airport.

Rubb 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.

Birtley Galvanizing were approached by metal fabricator Rubb to hot dip galvanize the steel frame which is clad with 150mm thick Thermohall insulated fabric, providing a U Value of 0.25 W/m2K. The process included fitting 8,700sqm of PVC membrane.

Birtley Galvanizing took the fabricated frame of the building (in sections) and put it through the galvanizing process. This is the first hangar of this type and Rubb expect Easyjet to see an increased benefit in service schedules and for more hangars of this type to be built and deployed in airports around the UK.
