Aircraft Hangar – Pacific Northwest

Contractor: Lease Crutcher Lewis
Engineers: PCS Structural Solutions
Tons: 1,000
Square Footage: 61,800

This sprawling corporate jet hangar includes what may be the longest trusses that we have ever fully assembled within our shop. Each 26 ton, 280′ truss was constructed on a specialized assembly table to hold the correct camber. The trusses were broken into four – 70 ft segments that were fully dry-fit in the shop. SunSteel provided the truss engineering and the truss was modeled by our team and included in the architect’s 3D model. Our efforts paid off: truss assembly and erection went off flawlessly.
