Site development - Hangar overhaul

As well as the modern buildings at Rutpen, we have an ex-RAF Type 2 aircraft hangar dating back to WWII.  Despite it originally having a 25 year design life, 70+ years later it is still standing strong, although the original cladding was, understandably, showing its age.  As part of our current investment program the hangar is now being refurbished and re-clad so that it can go on for many more years maintaining a link between modern industry and the airfield's historic past.
