Project name: RAF Faiford New Hangar
Client: Defence Estates / USAF
Location: RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire
M&E Order Value: £3.4m
The project combined the resources and abilities of Warings, Dodd Group, Amec and Babtie to provide temperature and humidity controlled hangars via externally mounted Air Handling Units, Chillers and Ice stores.
The electrical services comprise MV and LV services, high illumination flameproof lighting and 60Hz Power Frequency Converters. The Fire Services comprise full detection systems, sprinklers and foam generation.
This was a particularly challenging project from a building services perspective due the precise temperature control of the hangar which was needed to meet the maintenance requirements of the aircraft.
