Avalon Airport

Smith + Tracey were commissioned to masterplan and design the expansion and refurbishment of one of Avalon Airport’s existing 1950s fighter jet hangars to allow access and full fuselage and tail coverage for a Qantas 747 aircraft.

This allowed the Qantas team to undertake the rollout replacement and installation of the new Skybed product for business and first class passengers across their 747 fleet.

The project involved providing a full refurbishment of the hangar, amenity, workshop and office areas to compliance and safety standards while optimising the operational environment.
