Project Profile Spotlight

Jacksonville Naval Air Station, FL

This aircraft hangar is the largest in the world for the US Navy with clearspans of 455' and 428' at the front of the hangar to accommodate various aircraft. To achieve these record-setting clearspans, three-story tall box trusses were assembled in sections on the ground then lifted into place with the entire system bearing on temporary shoring towers. A 15-panel vertical lift fabric hangar door system by Megadoor was installed, supported by the box trusses. The 3-D structural design by BHS proved to be over 25% more efficient than the nearest conventional solution.
