Metal Sales™ outfits Hangar 25 at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, CA with 57,000 square feet of T-2832 and TLC-1 metal wall panels. The Metal Sales exterior contributes to the LEED platinum facility, in addition to providing striking aesthetic benefits.
Hangar 25 is the first facility of its kind to achieve LEED Platinum certification and has also been awarded the Environmental Management Award by the Airports Council International-North America. The 62,000 square-foot hangar was designed to offset aircraft carbon emissions, incorporating a solar-powered roofing system that runs all electric vehicles and office operations – totaling 110% of the building’s energy needs.
The LEED Platinum Hanger 25 also features low-water plumbing fixtures, native plant landscaping, and low-maintenance diamond-polished concrete flooring. It employs natural daylighting and large propeller ventilation. Its innovative water mist fire suppression system is the first of its kind in the US, and uses significantly less water than an ordinary system, while avoiding hazardous chemical transmission. 48% of the materials used in construction were obtained locally and 77% of construction waste was recycled.
Hangar 25 sits on a 2.1-acre site and accommodates a Boeing 757, a Boeing Business Jet (737) and two Gulfstream G-V business jets. It was designed for Shangri-La Construction, Los Angeles, CA and AVJET Corporation, Burbank, CA as a flagship model for similar future projects.
