RAF Leeming

Carter Design Group were appointed to lead both the Architectural and Structural design for the refurbishment of a World War II Type C Hangar involving the replacement of the existing Asbestos roof covering and Hangar doors.

The previous saw tooth profile roof was replaced with a lightweight built up roofing system following a new profile.  The existing steel frame from the 1930s had to be modelled in new software to justify the calculations produced during World War II.  The expansive Hangar doors 40m wide by 12m tall were removed and replaced with a modern motorised system.

The internal Hangar space, once used for storing bombers, is used for the ongoing maintenance and storage of modern day jet engine aircraft.
