The Design and Construction of the Prestressed Concrete Hangars at Helsinki Airport, Finland

The specification for the hangar was for a building of clear width of 491 ft., depth 164 ft., and height 34 ft.; the front 491 ft. to be unrestricted except for one central column, giving two clear openings of 244 ft. and the rear to have columns at 29 ft. centres giving access at ground level to adjacent buildings, with glazing above; the two side walls to be framed with columns and filled with brickwork and glazing. A cantilever canopy was required at the front to enable the high tail fin of a Stratocruiser to be accommodated. Frederick W. Gifford and Matti Janhunen
