Aircraft Wash Facility
Client: Defence Construction Canada
Prime Consultant: Jensen Group Architects
Location: Canadian Forces Base Comox
Completion: July 1998
This design build project involved the design and construction of a 2,600-m2 hangar to automatically wash and rinse the Aurora and Hercules aircraft. Constant input was solicited from the users of this facility to ensure the equipment and systems provided suited their requirements. The facility has a fully automated wash and rinse system that ensures that the optimal amount of soap and water is used for each aircraft. When the hangar was nearing completion, a change was made so that the hangar could accommodate the Buffalo aircraft.
