Description

The Rajiv Gandhi International terminal was selected by India’s National carrier -Air India for setting up its 2,70,000 square feet Zonal Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul facility. Built on the lines of strict dimensional parameters set by the Notified Area Committee that governs all construction within Airports in India, the facility consists of seven individual buildings including an Administrative building, the Hangar/maintenance building and three other Service buildings, each identified to house a particular maintenance activity.

The highlight of the Campus is the Hangar cum Annexe building that was designed as a 92m column free span to accommodate one Boeing 747 aircraft or two Airbus 320. Typically such large span structures are designed as space frames. However in this case, the open web pre-engineered truss roof with a built in catwalk was a direct result of the requirement to support two under slung 7.5 Ton capacity cranes. This posed various challenges to the design and Project Management Teams as integrating the structural design with the rest of the services necessitated precise engineering and planning by the Inter-disciplinary Team in Office, our Project Management team on site.
