Project : Greenside Presidential Helicopter Hangar and Airfield Improvements

NAVFAC Atlantic -- Marine Corps Base Quantico, Quantico, Virginia

This 63,880 sq. ft. hangar facility houses the Presidential Helicopter Squadron HMX-1, which includes the existing fleet of CH-53 Sikorsky helicopters and MV-22 Osprey aircraft. This design-build project provided 237 feet of clear-span hangar space and adjacent multi-story maintenance shops, in addition to administrative, medical, dental, storage, and support areas. The project also developed 540,000 sq. ft. of new airfield taxiway and apron pavement. The parking apron accommodates adequate space for eight HMX-1 aircraft and two transient aircraft. The hangar achieved LEED Silver certification through the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

Challenging project elements included aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) fire suppression systems, 13.2 kV underground primaries and pad-mounted switchgear, deep foundation systems with integrated two-way hangar floor slab, and meeting AT/FP requirements for military projects.
