Qantas Hangar 245 Upgrade, Sydney

As part of the Master Planning for the Central Hangar line Project at Sydney Jetbase, Hangar 245 was the first hangar to be upgraded. In order to accommodate Qantas fleet of aircraft, AMA were engaged to refurbish, upgrade and modify the existing heavy maintenance hangar into a base maintenance facility suitable for B747-400, B767-300, B777-200/300, B787-800/900, A330-200/300, B737-800, A320 and A321 aircraft.

Modification works included, demolition of existing 1970's docking, recladding the hangar doors to provide more natural light into the hangar, new tug entry/exits, new tech libaries/aircraft planning facilities, new inground and above ground services including pop up pits for mass flow air to aircraft and new 400hz aircraft power.

AMA were also responsible for the design of the docking to access the main entry doors to the aircraft.

Hangar 245 upgrade is considered very successful and is being used as a benchmark for Qantas hangar upgrades currently in progress.
