LINCOLN, NEB. — In June of 2014, Duncan Aviation will complete the largest expansion project its Lincoln, Nebraska, location has ever seen. A time lapse video showing the 175,000-square-foot facility currently under construction from start to its present status is now available for viewing. The sequence of images used to compose the video was pulled from a camera mounted on a nearby hangar.
The video and still photos of the maintenance hangar and shop space construction are available here.
The new construction is comprised of two 40,000-square-foot maintenance hangars and a 95,000-square-foot office and shop space. The overall dimensions of the building are 630 feet by 200 feet. The hangar will stand 46-feet tall at the eave and approximately 52 feet at the peak.
The facility’s foundation and footings were initially poured in 2012 and the framing, rafters, insulation and roofing sheets have been added so far this year. Most visibly notable is the main frame steel construction, completed in April, and the roofing, which was finalized just one month later. The first maintenance hangar is expected to be completed near the first quarter of 2014 and the entire structure will open that summer.
The expansion comes in response to customer requests and changing customer needs. As the industry continues to shift toward larger business aircraft, a trend fueled by technological advances and increased globalization, Duncan Aviation’s current hangars are unable to accommodate the volume of maintenance, modifications and completions work our customers require.
