Project Description

Technicians working on the CC-130J Super Hercules can maintain these new RCAF aircraft better and faster, thanks to Hangar 2's purpose-built construction at 8 Wing Trenton. The 11,582-m2 facility features two hangar bays, workshops customized for propellers, engines and avionics, and critical systems for energy conservation and controls, rain water recycling and high-expansion-foam fire suppression.

Rated LEED Gold, Hangar 2 incorporates some 2,500 tons of steel, 210 kilometres of electrical wires and 10 kilometres of in-floor radiant heat tubing. The state-of-the-art facility demonstrates the high level of communication, teamwork and attention to detail shared by DCC staff and the contractors involved in delivering such a large, complex project.
