250m hangar door replacement while in use

Company Butzbach GmbH Hangar Doors
Date 05.10.2017

The substitution of a door system at Geneva Airport without even the slightest interference with the hangar and airport operation was a challenge especially in regards of a smoothly functioning project management.

The Butzbach team accepted it – here you can find the outcome…

A time window of 5 hrs at night for transportation of the 12 fully assembled door leaves, each 15 x 20 m in size – 800 m distance between assembly and installation site – secure closing of the hangars at any time.

The Butzbach project team was trusted to meet these rigorous conditions and handed over the new hangar door system in time.

Being one partner for all steps of planning and installation with own staff paid off.
