Gatwick Airport, Boeing 747 Maintenance Hangar 5
BAA Gatwick & Taylor Woodrow
Hangar 5 & PL7 Buildings were industrial buildings, originally constructed to provide an aircraft hangar, maintenance workshops, welfare, offices and storage facility. The buildings date from the late 1970’s through to the early 80’s and were constructed from a variety of materials, reinforced concrete, structural steelwork, brick/block-work and profiled cladding. They were within close proximity to an air-side boundary, but located within a land-side environment with direct access to the major road network, the underground services infrastructure serving the buildings to be protected and retained for re-use.
