As a fast growing regional airport, Bristol International Airport needed to expand and create more apron space. Civil engineers BAM Nuttall chose REIDsteel to construct the new steel buildings.
The bottom rolling doors are light enough to be manually operated. By using four slabs (8.4m high x 7.75m wide) on four tracks, only one outrigger was needed to allow for a complete opening without encroaching the space of the neighbouring flying centre. The outrigger extended 7m from the outside edge of the hangar.
