CANA was selected by Sunwest Aviation Ltd. to manage the design and construction of the new Sunwest Hanger, Office and Terminal Development under a Design-Build/Project Management contract. The new facility consolidates aircraft storage and maintenance spaces for Sunwest’s existing fleet, while allowing for future growth to include Gulfstream G650 and Boeing 737 class aircrafts.
The project site is situated on a 15-acre Greenfield site within the YYC Deerfoot North Global Logistics Park and includes 174,000 ft2 of total new building space. The site is comprised of a new 632 stall parking lot, 203,000 ft2 apron, four hangar bays, three adjoined two-storey office blocks and a passenger terminal. The new 25,000 ft2 terminal is comprised of adaptable sterile and non-secure passenger hold areas, an executive lounge, a baggage handling area and a future in-house customs area.
The three offices are conventional structural steel and house the administrative and operations teams. The maintenance component of the facility is pre-engineered and features four 20,000 ft2 hangars, two wash bays and several workshop spaces.
