Architecture photos EADS / Cassidian – jet hangar

Architecture photos of a 220 by 67 meter column-free jet hangar for the Airbus Group / Airbus Defense & Space company for 20 tornado jets, with special emphasis on the LED industrial lighting from Philips.

Construction-technical background:
A completely column-free structure had to be constructed for the individual maintenance stations to run smoothly. Thanks to a barrel roof with a highly complex, three-dimensional steel structure, a hall with the enormous dimensions of 220 by 67 meters was created. On one side of the building, six composite columns, each only 50 by 50 centimeters, bear the load of the roof. By using these filigree supports, 42 meter wide gates could be set up on the south side.

Client: Philips
Participating companies: Airbus Group / Airbus Defense & Space, architects RKW+
