A Rubb aviation hangar building project has assumed a prominent position at Aerohub, a UK aerospace focused Enterprise Zone, based in Newquay, Cornwall.

The project will provide a large, custom designed space for Apple Aviation Group’s increased Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) operations. Apple Aviation has selected Aerohub at Newquay Cornwall Airport as the location for its aerospace maintenance facility headquarters.

Rubb began constructing the main steel framework for the hangar in April and then fixed Thermohall® insulated PVC cladding to the structure to create its roof and walls. The Rubb hangar has the capacity to accommodate the storage, maintenance, repair and overhaul of large fixed wing aircraft such as a Boeing 757.

A wide vertical lifting fabric Megadoor provides access to the hangar. Commercial Director of Apple Aviation, Bernard Longman, said: “Our MRO facility at Aerohub will include aircraft storage and recycling space and we look forward to building relationships with the local community and businesses in addition to contributing to the economy in the South West.”

Managing Director of Rubb Buildings, Ian Hindmoor, said: “We are very excited about completion of the project. This is another flagship facility which uses new Rubb technology such as the Thermohall® insulated cladding. The project itself came with various challenges, including the exposed nature of the site. However, by working together with the contractors and clients, we have managed to achieve a top-flight aircraft hangar we are all very happy with. The high specifications including the materials, engineering, Megadoor technology and internal services will ensure the MRO hangar will be used for many years to come.”

The hangar project was managed by Cornwall Council and funded by the Council and the Government’s Regional Growth Fund.

“The speed and flexibility of the Rubb hangar construction has enabled the airport to develop new hangarage and respond quickly to a key customer’s requirements. This has been critical in order for business to be undertaken in a competitive marketplace and puts NQY firmly on the MRO map with the capability to attract airlines to the facility.”
