||Project: Air Transat New Maintenance Hangar
|Location: Dorval, QC, Canada|
|Scale: 233 ft. span|
|Description : |
The construction challenge lied in the complexity of the long span truss (233 ft) which was supporting the main door chord members.
Indeed, several trusses and horizontal, vertical and diagonal frames were necessary to support the weight of the door and wind loads. This project earned an honourable mention given by the Canadian Institute of steel construction.
