To enhance passenger experience STOLport, a fixed based operator located at Billy Bishop Airport increased capacity in partnership with Global Steel Buildings. 2.5 million passengers fly through Billy Bishop Airport today.
Steel buildings are ideal terminal buildings. Because of its island location the pre-engineered design was the best choice for this STOLport. A STOLport is an airport designed with short take off and landing operations in mind. As a result of its island location the pre-fab panels were ideal and a far better solution then traditional building materials.
Benefits of steel buildings
- can be erected much more quickly than a building traditional materials
- environmentally friendly, steel is 100% recyclable
- less waste
- quick return on investment
- clear-span design allows for maximum use of space
- greater energy efficiency
- resistant to rot and mold
- resistant to insect and rodent infestation
Because the panels are pre-engineered and pre-drilled assembly is far quicker then with a traditional build. Getting up and running quickly is key. Because metal is 100% recyclable less waste is produced on assembly.
STOLport offers aircraft parking, fuel and passenger services and is the only FBO to offer float plane services on the island. The Global Steel Buildings Canada clear-span design was perfect to ensure the efficient use of space for STOLport.
Because the environment is a concern the fact that steel is 100% recyclable factored into the decision to purchase pre-engineered steel buildings.
Durable and built to withstand the Canadian climate steel buildings met all of STOLport’s needs.
