Cranleigh, Surrey, UK
Surrey Air Ambulance in Dunsfold Park has been providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) and air ambulance service to the people who live, work and travel through the county of Surrey since 2007.
From here, the Air Ambulance can can reach emergency situations in any part of Surrey within 15 minutes. Following the allocation of a strategically located plot at Dunsfold Park; John Reid & Sons Ltd (Reidsteel), together with a team consisting of Rutland (Cranleigh) Ltd, Fothergill & Associates and Hobart Paving Company (amongst others), set about designing a new aircraft hangar for this ‘Front-line’ Client. Their REIDsteel helicopter hangar spans 16m x 16m, and is 6m high at the eaves and Reidsteel designed, supplied and erected all structural steelwork and cladding, plus the six slab, three track, manually operated, sliding slab hangar doors, which provide a clear entrance 12m wide by 5m high.
The hangar consisted of an insulated double skin cladding system on the roof to help combat condensation forming on the underside and then dripping down on top of the valuable and essential equipment stored inside, with uninsulated single skin cladding on the walls and doors to keep costs to an absolute minimum.
Key to the swift delivery of the building into the hands of the Client was good, safe and considerate on site coordination to enable each trade to undertake their element of the works as efficiently as possible. The level of commitment from all parties was paramount to the successful completion of the project and the end result demonstrates the degree of attention to detail that was administered in every aspect.For more information, contact sales:
