Moffett Field Hangar, Mountain View

At more than 1,000 feet long, 250 feet wide, and 170 feet tall each, two blimp hangars constructed in the 1940s at Moffett Field are among the world’s largest clear-span timber structures. One of these hangars had significant damage to many of its timber truss arches, and the damage was progressing along the length of the hangar to the extent that there was concern the hangar, or portions of it, could collapse. Power retained Liftech to design systems to stabilize and provide access so Power could safely perform repairs.
