To house the manufacture and assembly of the composite wings for Bombardier Aerospace’s new CSeries commercial aircraft, it was necessary to construct a purpose-built facility. The new 600,000 sq ft wing manufacturing and assembly facility is located on Bombardier’s Airport Road West site and integrates into the existing building.
John Sisk & Son were uniquely positioned to provide the resources, and experience to deliver this facility to an extremely aggressive schedule. Demolition of some existing buildings was necessary to clear and level the site to achieve the appropriate building footprint. Familiarity with large-scale construction and intimate knowledge of the supply chain ensured that both materials and labour were co-ordinated closely on site to meet Bombardier’s deadlines.
