Calm Air is a regional, multi-service air carrier based in Thompson, MB. In addition to serving most northern communities in Manitoba, the airline provides regular passenger based and cargo flights to numerous points in Northern Ontario and Saskatchewan. Syverson Monteyne was commissioned to design a new regional headquarters facility for the Manitoba airline. The 30,000 sq.ft. building includes aircraft storage and maintenance within an enclosed hangar, cargo related facilities, departure/ arrivals lounge, training rooms complete with flight simulators, and office space.
Both hangar and office space areas were built using a typical pre-engineered steel building construction system. Unique elements were created by modifying and tweaking this conventional kit of parts with more high-end components such as mullion-less aluminum framed glazing.
