Andersen Air Force Base, Guam
This aviation maintenance hangar facility and fire pump building supports forward operations and maintenance functions for the Marine Air-Ground Task Force, located at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. With three primary areas — hangar bay, shop and maintenance, and operations — the 75,000-square-foot project features areas for high bay aircraft, crew and equipment maintenance, and administrative functions.
The facility supports MV-22 aircraft and has the future capability to support other aircraft, such as the KC-1303, CH-53, UH-1, and AH-1. The hangar consists of a structural steel/concrete roof supported on cast-in-place concrete walls and shallow spread footings. The administration area is comprised of pre-cast concrete double tees supported on cast-in-place concrete walls and shallow spread footings. Site work included all utilities, roadway pavement for roads and parking, airfield pavement for taxiways, aprons and aircraft parking, airfield lighting, security fencing and landscaping. This project includes Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) features to comply with AT/FP regulations and physical security mitigation in accordance with DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings.
Andersen AFB is a secure facility with inspected points of entry. As a second precaution, this new hangar is secured by fencing with man gates for entry. Building setback features and construction type also contribute to overall facility security.
