The addition of a new aircraft storage hangar has given the Centennial Airport in Centennial, Colorado an appealing facelift. The 39,917 square-foot structure includes a 30,000 square-foot, clear-span hangar bay designed for aircraft storage. Attached to the hangar is a 9,917 square foot lean-to area which consists of offices, a high-end lobby, a conference room, a break room, a waiting lounge, pilot support areas, shop space, garage space and a covered vehicle parking area.
Varco Pruden’s Rigid Frame system was used in the construction of the facility, which allows ideal flexibility in interior space utilization. The building, owned by Rare Air Limited, includes a curved roof assembly at the main entryway. The exterior cladding includes Varco Pruden’s SSR™ standing seam roof system and Panel Rib ™ wall system, both coated with Varco Pruden’s KXL™ finish. Cool Metallic Silver and Custom Noble Gray colors were used on the wall panels.
