Airship Hangar, Akron, OH
Merit Builders specializes in the reroofing and renovation of aging metal structures. So accomplished is the firm that it was commissioned to fully restore Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company’s historic airship hangar in Akron, Ohio, where the manufacturing icon’s famous blimp is housed. The building dimensions were 800 feet long, 140 feet wide and 102 feet tall.
The photos include Merit Builders’ Dave Gochenaur and Goodyear’s Nancy Ray Jandrokovic and Scott Babbo.
“We deﬁnitely had the right company on the job—I can’t give Merit enough credit.”
“We were looking for a long-term solution, and we felt that with this rooﬁng system we would have that.”
