Project : WestWind Technologies, Inc. C-130 Aircraft and Helicopter MRO Hangar

Hangar 1 Properties, LLC -- Huntsville Interational Airport, Huntsville, Alabama

CHA provided consulting, planning and design services for private development of a 65,000 sq. ft. build-to-suit maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) hangar servicing helicopters and fixed wing aircraft for WestWind Technologies, Inc. The hangar accommodates two C-130 aircraft or various configurations of helicopters for military and private industry maintenance programs. CHA led the conceptual design phase and worked closely with WestWind to design a customized facility based on WestWind’s exact needs while meeting the Huntsville-Madison Madison County Airport Authority’s building development standards and master plan program.

CHA's services met the goals of multiple interested parties and clients. The parties included the developer, Hangar Properties I of Huntsville, Alabama; Hoar Construction of Birmingham, Alabama; the Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority; and WestWind Technologies. We developed this project's scope to fit within budget while providing a fully operational facility.
