Project Description

The project entailed the construction of an arch-shaped, 4,700-square-meter concrete aircraft maintenance hangar, related support facilities, concrete aircraft aprons, tow ways, and asphalt service road on a 50,000-square-meter site at Andersen AFB, Guam. The hangar and related site improvements provide a reliable shelter and an air-conditioned environment for B-2 and B-52 aircraft maintenance and support for “hard broke” B-1B, B-2, B-52, KC-135, F-22 aircrafts that can not be flown off the island prior to a typhoon.

The main hangar structure is 20 meters high at its peak and has a gross floor area of 3,600 square meters. The hangar has a cast-in-place concrete foundation with post-tensioned grade beams and precast concrete wall and roof superstructure comprised of folded plate arch rib segments. Adjacent single-story and two-story support structures house open mechanical equipment yards, enclosed storage and equipment rooms, and second-floor mezzanine offices. Related facilities were constructed of conventional cast-in-place and precast elements and have a total gross area of 1,100 square meters. In all, approximately 800 metric tons of reinforcing steel and 9,500 cubic meters of concrete were used to construct the hangar, building extensions, site civil works, concrete aprons and tow ways.
