Monarch Airlines Hangar


Monarch Airlines Hangar


Our CDM consultants and designers have recently completed a new £10m aircraft maintenance hangar at Birmingham Airport.

The new, state-of-the-art MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul) facility, fulfils the servicing requirements of the new, super-efficient Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Despite this massive 110,000ft², facility being developed specifically to accommodate two Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, flexibility is key and the cavernous, column free hangar space can house two Boeing 747-400, two Boeing 777 or many smaller aircraft.

The facility is supported by offices, for fleet management plus specialist workshop space for the inspection/repair of modern composite materials.

Our consultation solutions for safe delivery included moving the Airside/Landside boundary for the duration of the works, in agreement with the CAA, so that works undertaken would:

not be subject to Airside’s stricter security measures,

minimise the opportunity / threat of FOD

have fewer restrictions on the use of cranes

reduce the opportunity for negative impact on the airport’s daily operations.


The CDM-Cs also challenged erection methods and sequencing of the hangar’s construction, due to the spans required to provide a clear internal space, ensuring it would be constructed safely and that the temporary conditions experienced during erection were addressed.

We have extensive aviation project experience including:

Runway construction in live environments

Runway regeneration/refurbishment in live environments

Works involving aircraft positioning and guidance systems

Aerodrome Ground Lighting installations

Drainage facilities

Taxiway construction in live environments
