Client: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Albuquerque District, for Air Force Special Operations Command
Completion Date: 2008
Location: Kirtland AFB, New Mexico
As the prime design-build contractor, Burns & McDonnell provided integrated design and construction services for this 32,450-square-foot hangar to provide primary capabilities to the assigned Special Operations Forces at Kirtland AFB for maintenance, corrosion control and painting of C-130(J), CV-22, MH/HH 60G Pave Hawk, MH-53J Pave Low and UH-1H Huey aircraft. The hangar includes a single aircraft paint bay, support equipment preparation bay and paint booth, paint mixing room, paint storage room, composite repair room, plastic media blasting room and personnel support areas. A three-stage, NESHAP-compliant air-filtration wall removes 98 percent of the dust, liquid and solid paint overspray from the air before venting it out of the facility, exceeding U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards.
