Maintenance hangar for 12 Eurofighter aircraft, Phase II / Works to modernise Moron de la Frontera Air Base (Seville, Spain)

The project consists of designing a building which includes a hangar, office facilities and a fire station, along with the refurbishment and enlargement of the warehouse building. The hangar must have sufficient capacity to hold 12 EF- 200 Eurofighter aircraft and the necessary facilities to perform maintenance operations on the aircraft. It is sized to allow the parking of aircraft and their movement through the hangar.

The office facilities are divided in such a way so that the programme’s management and production control department are located on the top floor and the workshops on the ground floor.

The fire station measures 1,500m2 and houses a vehicle workshop area, housing units, administrative facilities for the hospital, communications and alarm systems, among other facilities.

The warehouse building is to be enlarged by approximately 2,400m2. In order to achieve greater storage capacity, a paved area measuring 6,000m2 has been made available on an adjacent plot, seeking to optimise distribution into the different areas and elements stored.
