This 91,461 sq. ft. facility is the second hangar that Heavy Structures has provided for Continental Airlines at their Newark hub. Situated next to Hangar #56 built a few years prior, the structural framing system incorporated straight mill shape columns and 18' deep roof trusses and an overhead crane. Economies were realized by utilizing standard Z-shape, coldform members for the roof purlins and wall girts. The building provides an interior clearspan of 229' and has been designed to accommodate a Boeing 777. The 220' x 70' hangar door was supplied as part of Heavy Structures' scope of work. A standing seam metal roof was supplied and increased the number of roof purlins in high uplift areas. Other products supplied include metal wall panels, exclusive fall protection and insulation support system, all roof and wall insulation, and all of the structural steel framing for the adjacent shop and office building.
