Maintenance Hangar,

Manchester Airport

Completed: June, 2019

Service: Architecture

Sectors: Workplace, Transport, Industrial


Size: 88,000sqft purchased the existing maintenance hangar in 2016 and set about refurbishing it to modern standards by upgrading the main hangar space with modern finishes and lighting.

The associated workshops and bonded stores were adapted to suit the operator’s specific needs. Around 7000sqft of office space was also provided as ancillary business support. The primary challenge was designing and delivering a building in a ‘controlled airside’ designation, which demands very specific security controls.

"Having worked with Rob and Patrick on some key projects for, they have always provided an excellent service with a collaborative, friendly approach, backed up by great design and technical skills. Their timely response to architectural challenges has been greatly appreciated. I look forward to continued relationship with Cunniff Design over the coming years."
