- Hangar Expansion Program
Southwest Airlines' maintenance hangar, ground support equipement (GSE) and provisioning facilities at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport are located on the east airfield end of the airport and are constrained by their current operations, roadways, APM and taxiways. Southwest was challenged in trying to update its hangar operations and make room for additional and larger aircraft while maintaining 24/7 operations.
Our team is providing planning, programming, A/E design and construction administration services for the program, which includes the demolition and relocation of Southwest's GSE (13,500 square feet) and provisioning (22,500 square feet) facilities to make room for a new three-position hangar (80,000 square feet) with shops, offices and stores; new ramp and striping; renovation and modernization of the existing hangar, shops and offices; adjacent roadway modifications; and a new 300-vehicle remote parking lot.
