Project Description

Scone Airport is located 300km north of Sydney and 150km northwest of Newcastle which currently supports a variety of small aviation businesses and services. In late 2015, Upper Hunter Shire Council commissioned a long- term Airport Master Plan for Scone Airport with the direction considering the growth in aviation demand. In early 2018, STP Consultants were engaged to undertake the consulting engineering for the Aviation Visitor Attraction (AVA) including Structural, Electrical, Mechanical and Hydraulic services. STP Consultants works closely with STEA Astute Architecture to develop the schematic design, design development and contract documentation. The purpose of the Aviation Visitor Attraction (AVA) is to be used as a multipurpose facility providing to the Upper Hunter Region with unique aviation attraction which includes a café, gift shop and interactive aircraft display. The AVA will be set on approximately 3,200 m2 of airconditioned exhibition space for visitors to have the experience of potential joy flights in display aircraft and aircraft demonstration day and air shows.
