This new approximately 72,500 SF 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. The aircraft maintenance hangar is comprised of three areas – the hangar bay, the shop and maintenance area, and the administration and operations area. The project features high bay aircraft spaces, crew and equipment maintenance spaces, and administrative spaces. This aircraft maintenance hangar will support MV-22 aircraft and, with a minimum of renovation, be capable of supporting other aircraft, such as the KC-1303, CH-53, UH-1, and AH-1, in the future. The hangar consists of a structural steel/concrete roof supported on cast-in-place concrete walls and shallow spread footings. The administration area is pre-cast concrete double tees supported on cast-in-place concrete walls and shallow spread footings. Site work includes all utilities, roadway pavement for roads and parking, airfield pavement for taxi-ways, 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. All service vehicles are inspected again prior to access to the Hangar or airfield. All personal vehicles are restricted to parking outside the fenced perimeter of the hangar. The hangar and airfield are fenced with secure entry only. Other features with the building setback and type of construction contribute to the overall security of this facility.
Sustainable design practices were integral to the project approach. We produced a sustainable, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly design for this new construction project to meet LEED Silver certification requirements. The Design-Build team blended their creative talents to achieve development plans that conserve environmental resources without sacrificing economics, function, or aesthetic objectives. To meet LEED requirements, the team focused on water conservation; recycled materials; natural lighting; and energy efficient systems. With certified LEED design professionals, we provided the professional services to ensure the project met or exceeded LEED certification requirements.
