Air New Zealand Hangar

Client Air New Zealand | Date of Completion June 2015 | Duration 11 months | Contract Value $6.6 million

Scope and Scale 

A distinctive development of an aviation institute including both a hangar and training facility, adjacent to the runway at Christchurch airport.

The training facility, 940m2, consists of nine classrooms, library, training aid room, security room, kitchen, toilets and lobby and accommodates up to a maximum of 153 staff and students at any one time.

The single storey hangar and workshops, 2253m2, includes a mezzanine office and kitchen area, 393m2.

The project was unique structurally as it incorporated large amounts of cross laminated timber in lieu of steel due to the proximity of flight compass calibration equipment. 



HRS spent considerable time prior to the construction phase in cost conciliation in order to maximise cost savings.

During construction, significant cost savings were achieved on site trenching through careful coordination of multiple services.

Considerable organisation was required in respect of permits on a continued basis due to the proximity of the runway.
