RAF Hendon Hangar 1 Refurbishment
We supplied the main Mechanical and Electrical contractor, see which historical plane they had to navigate working around as it was to remain in place during the refurbishment.
We supplied the main Mechanical and Electrical contractor at RAF Hendon, where they were installing all the M&E as part of the museums refurbishment of Hangar 1.
All the contractors on site had to work around the resident Short S.25 Sunderland (a flying boat patrol bomber) which was to remain in place during the course of the refurbishment as it was considered too fragile to be moved.
A new industrial door was designed to help enable future access for other larger aircraft.
The new Hangar 1 was transformed into two new exhibitions. Foremost will be the ‘First 100 Years of the RAF’ display – focusing on the people of the RAF through its lifetime. The second has a working title ‘Now and the Future’, and will be a place where people can look at what the next stages for the RAF are.
See the images below of how the new Hangar 1 refurbishment is expected to look once completed in the spring 2018:
