Working closely with the client’s engineering arm we carried out this review, development, and design

With one of their facilities lacked adequate infrastructure and support capabilities, the Department of Defence needed a replacement. Located at 8 Wing Trenton, this project set out to efficiently house the Aerospace and Telecommunications Engineering Support Squadron (ATESS) operations. Their duty? To perform pre- and post-finishing for the CT114 Tutor and CT133 Silver Star aircrafts for Canada’s military.

The facility, which accommodates the simultaneous preparation and painting operations and refinishing capabilities of at least two aircrafts at a time, incorporates the latest mechanical air handling systems and was designed with sustainability and green values in mind. We provided full engineering and architectural design services for this new refinishing facility incorporating the latest environmental controls and technologies.

Our team completed the validation of the initial design concept including a full review of the facility programming, operational capability, and industrial process issues. Additionally, our team provided site and civil design works, all building engineering design disciplines, and architectural design services. With this new refinishing facility in place, the Department of Defence had everything they needed to support their aircraft maintenance.
