ABOUT


Description

A private group of local and international investors asked Atelier-Vidal Ltd. to develop concepts for the creation of a hangar to manufacture powered fixed wing aircraft. The feasibility study examines Kingston Jamaica as a natural hub for facilities of this kind due to its English-speaking workforce, access to a large natural harbour and proximity to the world’s largest economy. The design is focused on maximizing the flow of parts from the public road and through the internal component fitting zones. Adjacent to the large workspace are several storage and mechanical service areas, while the upper floors include training rooms, meeting rooms, café areas and offices.
