Bendigo Gliding Club aircraft hangar

Project overview

Bendigo Gliding Club is located in the regional suburb of Raywood. The club is a recreational gliding club that is growing steadily in members.  

Owners of the club contacted us for a hangar and after a successful project completion of that hangar, they returned for a second hangar. The two hangars stand side by side on the club’s airfield.  

Our client required the hangars to be designed for wide-spanned gliders and 3m high sliding doors to comfortably get gliders in and out of the hangar. They also wanted doors at both ends of the hangar without outriggers.  

On-site build time:

  • 6 weeks

Job site location:

  • Raywood

Project collaborators: 

  • Laker Group
  • Gliding club members

Our scope and build details:

Challenges and solutions

Ensuring we designed the door system appropriately for our client’s needs required us to design the building with a triple-track door system with intermediate ground guides placed in positions to ensure they would remain unobstructed from our client’s rail system.  

 

“From the outset, Central Steel Build’s approach and ability to incorporate our design requirements, their attention to detail, helpfulness, and friendly attitude made the task of introducing two new glider hangars at Raywood a rewarding and painless exercise. Both buildings were manufactured and installed precisely on time and within budget. I’d have no hesitation recommending the company to anyone thinking of erecting a quality and superior structure for this purpose.”
