AirTran Airways has established itself as an important carrier in the modern aviation market. Prime Engineering is proud of its recent design, engineering, and surveying work on the firmís behalf. In a short time, Prime and AirTran have developed a partnership that has led to significant achievement for both parties.
Although Prime has completed several projects for AirTran, the most noteworthy is our recent work on AirTranís new maintenance hangar at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
To meet AirTrainís need for a modern hangar facility that satisfied both programmatic and aesthetic needs, Prime provided civil engineering, surveying, and landscape architecture support. The resulting 76,000-foot maintenance hangar facility combines innovative materials use, energy efficiency, state-of-the-art safety features, and flexibility.
In keeping with the 21st-century realities of efficiency and versatility, every design and engineering feature was implemented to meet not just one, but several needs at once: e.g., a hangar roof design that enhances flexibility, conserves power, and heightens aesthetic appeal. The result: a structure that accommodates the newest and most advanced aircraft in convenience and safety while simultaneously conserving energy and controlling costs.
