Queensland Air Museum

Project Overview

The Queensland Air Museum is a non profit community group preserving Australia’s aviation heritage.

Spantech designed and constructed Hangar 1 in the classic Quonset style.

The structure is designed not only to protect the most fragile exhibits in the collection, it is strong enough to support many of the light-weight aircraft and scale models from the arch itself.

The building is visited by over 12,000 visitors each year.
