Irving Oil Limited
18,000 square foot aircraft hangar
Saint John, NB
FCC Construction provided construction management services for Irving Oil's new hangar at the Saint
John Airport. The facility provides a new home for
Irving Oil’s Aviation Services aircraft and personnel.
The project was a real OSCO “team effort”. In addition to FCC’s
general contracting services, five other companies/divisions supplied
products and services: ready-mix concrete by OSCO Concrete; reinforcing
steel by OSCO Rebar; structural steel by Ocean Steel; precast concrete
by Strescon; and electrical work by FCC’s Electrical.
Built to house the current fleet of planes with room for expansion,
the state-of-the-art hangar includes: high tech
workstations; a curved hangar roof; epoxy floor; in-floor radiant
heating; and a special, 110 foot long fabric hangar door. The all-white
interior is light and bright.
The building also includes an office/support wing, which will be
home to the pilots and support staff required to keep the planes
flying. The single-story wing includes a parking garage, maintenance
shop, parts storage, technical library, kitchen, offices, meeting room,
flight planning center and passenger lounge.
