The main building at DARTeC, the new digital aviation research centre at Cranfield University is now starting to take shape. Housing the research laboratories and office space, this new innovative centre will help to transform the way aviation operates using digital technologies.

The Kalzip roofing is now complete, as is nearly 80% of the cladding on the building, which will sit adjacent to the ‘hangar laboratory’ housing a Boeing 737 aircraft. The experimental radar towers are also now in their final stages, having stairs and balustrades installed and curtain walling due to commence soon.
