How Was H.S. Williams the Best Construction Company for the Job?

  • Nicewonder Aviation needed a hangar for a new corporate jet and H.S. Williams Company has a passion for aviation.
  • Our quick response to client requests, and six decades of experience with pre-engineered metal buildings, spurred shortened design time and expedited hangar construction.
  • H.S. Williams Company brought several unique aspects to the hangar, including a heated approach ramp that ensures jet removal in inclement weather, and epoxy floor coating to brighten the interior and increase visual appeal.

Hangar Construction Challenges

  • Working at an airport is a unique construction site that presents a number of challenges.
  • H.S. Williams personnel had to remain ever vigilant of both ground and air traffic.
  • Our engineers worked closely with the FAA and airport authorities to meet all guidelines on building construction, egress for the aircraft and aircraft clearances.
