Swinerton is under construction on a new 128,000-square-foot maintenance hangar and outbuildings for Southwest Airlines at Denver International Airport. In addition to the buildings, the 26-acre site has extensive paving for slab-on-grade hangar floor, taxiway, and parking. The hangar bay will have the capacity to house three airplanes and will also include support shops for aircraft maintenance. A large portion of the hangar structure is bolt-up steel, similar to a PEMB. The hangar features a standing seam metal roof, parapet membrane, and underdrain in the building to protect the structure from expansive soils. Hangar doors include roll-ups, overhead, and security doors with controlled access.
“Working with Swinerton on our Denver hangar project, we’ve been really pleased with their project management skills – including working hand-in-hand with us to optimize the project to conserve capital spending to help us get through the COVID-19 pandemic impact on our overall business,” said Dan Landson, communication lead at Southwest Airlines.
