GeneralAviation Hangar Restoration

Theproject deals with the renovation of a hanger that belongs to aprivate individual. The hangar is located at a general aviationairport. Similarly, it is usually used to house a Cessna 310 planewhich has two engines. The renovation exercise is important given thefact that it has never obtained any face-lift since it was set up inthe year 1950. CEN CONSTRUCT was tasked with carrying out theexercise (Triant and Dennis, 2008). Since it had never taken part insuch kind of a project, it hired a separate entity to develop anassignment management system that would help ensure that all thesteps that would be taken throughout the implementation of the taskwould be of great help for the attainment of the set objectives.

Oneof the goals of the project lies in the establishment of new hangerfeatures. Notably, this is because the client would wish to have someelements which were lacking in at the facility added. Given the factthat it was established more than a century ago, there is high chancethat a lot has changed regarding the features that would need to benecessary at the given establishment. Such needs would arise asgrowth and development are observed in the aviation industry (Triantand Dennis, 2008). The plane would, therefore, need more items thatwould help to facilitate its stay at the hanger. The people manningthe aircraft would also require some facilities such as a rest areaat the time that they are either set to board the plane or just soonafter landing it. Some of these establishments would include toiletand shower as well as a cabinet for storing spare parts for theaircraft

Anotherobjective involved the removal of some redundant features from thehanger. These are those items that are available at the hanger but dolittle to make it effective in delivering its required purpose(Triant and Dennis, 2008). Such features could have been quitenecessary some time back, but their use could have reduced with timeand therefore, no longer needed. It would be desirable to remove themso as to save on space a factor that is quite important as far asthe purpose of a hanger is concerned.

Anotherobjective would be to ensure that the electrical wiring of the hangaris changed (Triant and Dennis, 2008). Since it was done many yearsago, there is high chance that such a system could have variousproblems out of being worn-out and would be quite important to changethe electrical connections with newer materials so as to ensure thatany form of mishaps such as power surges are not experienced.

Thehanger would also need to be repainted so as to look beautiful andappealing. In spite of this being an aesthetic activity, it normallyhas far-reaching advantages since the people visiting the hanger willbe faced with a more attractive place. There would also be the needto install a ventilation system at the hangar (Triant and Dennis,2008). Essentially, this would be substantial for regulating aerationand temperatures in the facility so as to ensure that any individualinside does not suffer any forms of discomfort. The same would alsogo with the installation with a floor screed that would be easy towash and also bear a visual appeal to people coming into the hanger. All these objectives would go a long way in improving the conditionof the hangar.
