Hangar 10 Expansion Combines Sustainable and Functional Design
< Back to projects

Location: Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Oak Harbor Washington

In order to support the new EA-18G Growler aircraft at NAS Whidbey Island, many updates to the 43,701 square foot Hangar 10 were required, including a two-aircraft/bay addition of 25,777 square feet that brought the overall building square footage to 69,478. The design-build renovation and addition included a complete reconfiguration of the administrative and shop spaces, an elevator installation in the shops and administration spaces portion of the facility, and a new horizontal sliding/retracting pocket/ hangar door system. The concrete aircraft apron was upgraded to provide six additional aircraft parking spots, including mooring eyes and grounding points. A new line maintenance shelter (line shack) was constructed adjacent to Hangar 8 for assigned personnel and storage of tie down chains, wheel chocks, and cables. The structure was updated to meet all current codes and standards related to seismic design, anti-terrorism/force protection (AT/FP), LEED Silver-qualifying energy codes, and acoustical engineering related to occupied spaces along the controlled flight lines. The new facility will accommodate six EA-18G aircraft and three EA-18G aircraft squadrons.

Design-build contractor Korte Construction selected POWER to be the lead designer, Architectural Designer of Record (A-DOR,) and overall DQCM for this project. POWER provided the architectural and comprehensive interior design services while managing the civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and acoustical engineering design subconsultants. Services include design drawings completed in Building Information Modeling (BIM), three-part specifications, construction administration, close-out/as-built drawings, and completion of the DD1354.
