Let's Talk

Our Account Managers thoughtfully evaluate each project to meet and exceed your requirements. Before estimating a new hangar project, we discuss several hangar design considerations, including:

Aircraft Details

Such as clearance height and width requirements. Most single-engine aircraft have a wingspan of 38′ or less. Schweiss, one of our hangar door affiliates, provides a useful reference list of model dimensions from major private aircraft manufacturers here.

Intended Function

The primary purpose of the hangar will be to house aircraft, but will the design include office space, maintenance, or storage areas? We evaluate mezzanine levels as an excellent resource for adding office space during the initial design consultation.

Project Location

We use local building codes and loads to determine the mandatory amount of steel for fabricating your structure, meeting and exceeding engineering requirements and reinforcing architectural elements.
