Simon Hackett describes himself as 'a keen pilot who also wants to be a keen farmer'. So, when he bought The Vale - a rural property in Sheffield with a 1300 metre runway - it wasn't just any old shed that he required!

Simon approached Bison needing an aircraft hangar at The Vale and we're proud to say we could meet his requirements. We worked alongside Simon and Sydney-based Neeson Murcutt Architects, to design and construct a superior steel building, worthy of housing his 'aviation bits and pieces' (including a Pilatus PC-12 and a 23 metre wingspan glider!)

Working on this project was fascinating and rewarding. We're very pleased with the outcome and judging by his testimony in the video, so is Simon.

Salesman ...

"Working through the design of this magnificent aircraft hangar was an absolute pleasure! Simon had extensive requirements with this building, with the varied aircraft to be housed, so we needed to look at a variety of sizes and options to come up with the most cost-effective, flexible and functional facility.

The integration of the hydraulic door allowed large aircraft access, creates an awning when opening and best of all, it's simple and easy to operate.

Absolute delight to be part of the project - well done Simon!"

We immediately decided there was such a good trust relationship there, in terms of Bison building what we needed, that we didn't need to look any further.
