FedEx Airbus Hangar Facility

Location: Memphis, Tennessee
Construction Value $100M
Client: Federal Express Corporation
Start Date: 2006
End Date: 2009

Pearson provided to FedEx schedule consulting services during construction of FedEx’s new mega hangar that can simultaneously service two Boeing 777 Freighters. The hangar is the first of its kind in North America and is so large some were concerned it would present line-of-sight difficulties for air traffic controllers. In addition to the hangar, the facility includes a storage warehouse, shop infill building, 2-story office building and a ground support maintenance building (GSE). Unique phasing challenges were implemented to not disrupt the flow of 4.2 million tons of cargo flowing through the Memphis International Airport.
