Design of the Eastern Air Lines Plating Shop 820606
Eastern’s new plating shop has an uncluttered overhead in the tank areas, all plating lines are in one room, and second floor plating areas are above full access pit areas. The shop has down-draft ventilation, more than one hundred tanks 3 feet × 5 feet and larger, and was built into an existing structure. This was accomplished in a cost effective design which was constructed on time and within budget and which provides a shop that is easy to maintain, monitor, and modify. Special attention was given to meeting environmental regulations.
