AJ Engineering has a long history of work on military bases, being located so close to both Kinloss Barracks and RAF Lossiemouth, we are able to provide assistance at short notice.
At RAF Leuchars we were asked to replace 2No existing hanger doors. The new doors were 9m high and 50m wide and made up of numerous individual sections.
The programme window was particularly slim as all works had to complete before the start of a NATO exercise. In addition the RAF were keen to have a door so they could lock up their Tornados at night.
The door frames and cladding were all assembled flat on the ground outside the hanger and then lifted into place.
