Action Sheds Australia Offers Sage Advice for Erecting an Aircraft Hangar

Provider of farm, industrial and storage sheds in Perth provides checklist of important considerations when erecting an aircraft hangar.

Perth, WA, 20 December 2013 - When people hear “Action Sheds Australia,” they usually think of a backyard storage shed, but Action Sheds Australia provides much more than backyard sheds. Among their offerings are barns, large commercial warehouses, offices and even aircraft hangars.

Recently, in a post on their blog, Action Sheds Australia provided its readers with important considerations for potential owners of commercial and private aircraft hangars.

A closer look in any industrial area will reveal that many commercial buildings are actually large sheds. Shed construction has proven to be durable, sturdy and very cost-effective compared to other building methods. In fact, many major companies have chosen shed construction for their warehouse and distribution operations.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that a large percentage of aircraft hangars are large, well-built sheds. Action Sheds Australia provided these details, as well as many other factors for consideration when building an aircraft hangar.

Commercial Aircraft Hangar

Commercial aircraft hangars can be owned by airports or they can have off-site owners who are leasing the land. Action Sheds Australia recommends considering many factors when deciding whether or not to erect a commercial aircraft hangar.

The first is to assess if there is sufficient demand for commercial aircraft hangars in the area. One of the first determinants is whether or not there is a waiting list at the airport for hangar space and whether or not nearby airports have a waiting list. The amount of aircraft in the vicinity is another factor. Action Sheds Australia also recommends knowing the rental rate for hangar space, not only in the airport being considered, but at other airports in the area.

Once a decision is made to erect a commercial aircraft hangar, Action Sheds Australia recommends compiling a cost analysis. Some of the costs include the cost of leasing land if not the airport owner, whether or not the airport will require installation of ramps or taxi lanes, how much to establish water and electricity service, the cost of the hangar itself, construction costs, financing costs, taxes and fees, maintenance and vacancy expenses.

Action Sheds Australia also notes that while many aircraft hangar businesses are run in the traditional mode, many are also opting for a condominium model, where hangar space is rented or sold like condominiums.

Private Use Hangars

For private use, the process is as simple as it would be to erect a barn. The main considerations will be size, cost and location. Action Sheds Australia does recommend ensuring that an aircraft hangar is allowed under local regulations.

To Shed or Not to Shed

According to Max Italiano, owner of Action Sheds Australia, the decision whether to build an aircraft hangar out of traditional building materials or to use a large, industrial quality shed is clear: “At this point, pretty much anyone building an aircraft hangar is having it done by a shed company that is large enough and competent enough to do the job.”

Mr Italiano continued, “At Action Sheds Australia, we have supplied many aircraft hangars, from small hangars for one helicopter to commercial hangars at airports. Our materials and workmanship are flawless, and we offer a 10-year structural warranty along with a 15-year cladding warranty.”
