Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport Drive-Through Canopy, United States

United States | Robbins Engineering Consultants

When Sheltair decided to expand its aviation network footprint with its first Fixed Base Operator (FBO) facility west of the Mississippi River, they partnered with Tectonic Management Group and Robbins Engineering Consultants as their architect and structural engineer of record, respectively. 

The Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport project in Broomfield, Colorado, included a new 35,000-square-foot hangar, a new 10,400-square-foot FBO building, and arched steel drive-through canopies – one for cars at the street entrance and the other for jets on the aircraft side. 

The FBO provides a passenger lounge, dedicated office space, conference rooms, restrooms, and dedicated areas for the operation of staff and line service. At 10,088 square feet, the aircraft canopy was almost as large as the building it served. At 15 feet taller than the FBO, both factors made the canopy readily visible to incoming pilots.
