YVR Airside Operations


Safety & Efficiency

This 8,626 m2 facility design to enhance the overall safety and efficiency to serve the current and future airport operations. The facility comprises a new 7 bay fire hall, maintenance bays, an indoor parking garage, a materials storage building with vehicle wash bays and a fueling complex. The project will also serve as a central hub of operations and a staging area for all airside maintenance activities.

Designed to YVR’s sustainability requirements, the facility includes several notable sustainable features such as rainwater harvesting, LEED lighting, solar collectors and PV array, as well as geothermal heating. Manny, while with Francl Architecture, led the Francl team as project architect through to building permit application. Vince Knudsen was also a valuable team member assisting with architectural production documentation.
