Steel Airplane Hangar at Lompoc Airport in CA
Sunward Steel manufactured a steel hangar for the Lompoc Airport in Lompoc, California in December of 2013.
Rene Minjares worked with Sunward Steel to design a custom airplane hanger for the local airport in Lompoc. The airport needed additional space to house planes and aircraft equipment. Considering the location was often open to the public while hosting community events, such as the Toys for Tots fundraiser, Rene wanted a professionally designed hangar that could be presented proudly to the city.
Sunward Steel came through and provided a pre-engineered steel building to meet the needs of the airport. The large structure sits 70’x70’x30’ with a tall 3:12 roof pitch to accommodate aircraft height. Three 3070 walk doors and an 8’x8’ overhead framed door opening were built for easy transport. The building also features a 4’x3’ window for natural sunlight.
The hangar has four 6’’ rain gutters and an 8’x6.5’ translucent panel, which is used as a skylight. The exterior consists of siphon groove technology and a galvalume roof.
