Ottawa Airport Hangars

Porter Aviation Holdings Inc. is building two massive aircraft hangars at the Ottawa International Airport. At 150,000+ square feet and $65 million, the project is designed by Scott Associates Architects. PCL is acting as construction manager together with Span Construction & Engineering. HH Angus is providing mechanical and electrical engineering to the project, as well as ICAT and security design.

The Porter hangars are being constructed in two phases - the first was completed in late 2023, and the second is expected to be completed in 2024. They are part of a series of projects to revitalize the Ottawa Airport, so that it can accommodate increased air travel demand in the National Capital Region. The hangars will span approximately 86 metres, and will be able to house several aircraft, along with various repair and parts modification shops.

One of the project's key design criteria is to exceed current energy efficiency standards, in line with the airport's commitment to net-zero operations by 2040 or sooner.

HH Angus is also working with Scott Associates Architects on Porter Aviation's Saint-Hubert Airport Terminal project, a new zero-carbon terminal that will serve an estimated four million passengers annually. We were also involved with the original revitalization of the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport that was completed in 2011, as well as its further expansion in 2014, and have been working with Porter Aviation since its inception.
