New construction at the base will consist of a fully enclosed 80,700-square-foot hangar bay that permits aircraft jacking, and 93,000 square feet of shops and administration functions for maintenance of the C-5 aircraft. Also included in the work is an aircraft apron, which features over 1.4 million square feet of 13” thick concrete pavement.
The team includes HSMM of Washington, D.C. as the designer of the apron and hydrant loop, and CH2M Hill of Reston, Va. as the designer of the hangar and maintenance mall. Construction is scheduled for completion in Summer 2007.
Clark recently completed a $16 million new 10-story, 130-foot airport control tower and infrastructure improvements at the West Virginia Air National Guard facilities in Martinsburg, W.Va. The project involved demolition of the existing control tower, construction of a new tower, and installation of new infrastructure for the entire base, including all new utilities services, a new main entrance road, a new guard house and security upgrades.
Some of the largest aircraft in the world, the C-5 can carry fully equipped combat-ready military units to any point in the world on short notice and provide field support to troops.
