Supporting current and future aircraft contracts

When Sierra Nevada Corporation, SNC, needed a large, functional, and secure hangar at the Colorado Springs Airport, the aerospace and defense company chose our design-build team with Bryan Construction. We designed a hangar that allows SNC greater flexibility for their growing service lines, the capability to store multiple aircraft, and the opportunity to improve its workspace experience.

The 31,000-square-foot aircraft hangar was designed and sited to maximize our client’s use of the space and leverage their facility for future work. As a recipient of government contracts, the client’s hangar needed to support one specific program, as well as any potential aircraft maintenance or integration contracts the client would be awarded.

With a clear door width of 165 feet and a tail door with a height of 44 feet, the hangar can accommodate multiple small- to medium-sized aircraft and larger planes ranging from a Boeing 737-900 to a Lockheed C-130.

Understanding this project's role in the larger picture

Beyond the programmatic needs of the facility, this pre-engineered metal building structure needed to transcend the concept of a traditional hangar. Our team created a practical, flexible, and comfortable space for our client’s staff by incorporating large windows to flood the floor with daylight, strategic placement of ceiling fans to limit temperature de-stratification, and flexible utilities for the workspace. Instrumental to the safety of both our client’s employees and their customers’ assets, a foam suppression system is integrated into the design of the facility.

Through our existing portfolio with this client, our team understands their need for practical, innovative, and fast-paced designs. The design of this hangar is the product of actively listening to our client to create a facility that meets the needs of the business and the people working within the facility.
