Size: 32,890 sq. ft.
This full turnkey project exemplifies our place in the large ClearSpan industry. The 82,000 sq. ft. facility is the largest aircraft hangar in Kelowna and the surrounding areas. We also supplied and installed the 140 ft. wide x 38 ft. high 6-leaf, bi-parting door system to allow planes as large as the Boeing 757 to roll into the building for service. It’s a true example of the work and capabilities of Norsteel Building Systems. We have completed 7 different projects for the owner, Mr. Barry Lapointe of Kelowna Flightcraft, adding to our list of repeat customers.

The Abbotsford Airport is another satisfied return customer for Norsteel Building Systems. This 18,000 sq. ft. facility resembles the same one built in Kelowna for the same customer. The building comes complete with 12,000 sq. ft. of hangar space (120 ft. ClearSpan) and 6,000 sq. ft. of high-end, finished upper and lower level office space. Norsteel Building Systems was the general contractor on this project and our in-house crews supplied the design, foundation, building erection and interior finish works. This project included the supply and installation of the 5-leaf bottom rolling pocket aircraft door system with a 108 ft. wide x 28 ft. tall clear opening.
