This project involved the design of a modern C-130 Fuels System Maintenance and Corrosion Control (FSMCC) hangar and shops for the Kentucky ANG located at the Louisville International Airport.
The facility was designed to fit into a site restricted by existing construction and base boundaries. The project also included pavement design/construction of approximately 12,500 SY of C-130 aircraft ramp access taxiway to connect the new FSMCC hangar to the aircraft parking apron as well as water, sanitary sewer, drainage, gas, electric and telephone utilities.
Design included architectural, and civil/site, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering disciplines. This $4 million design-build project was part of the development of a base relocation resulting from the expansion of the commercial airfield, which required relocation of the Kentucky ANG facilities. The 23,800 SF FSMCC hangar project was constructed using the design/build acquisition process. The purpose of the facility is to provide a hangar for the environmentally safe repair of aircraft fuel cells/bladders and corrosion control on aircraft parts, both on and off the aircraft.
