- KC-46A Maintenance Hangar & Infrastructure - Tinker AFB
Burns & McDonnell provided master planning and design of a two-bay depot maintenance hangar, mechanical systems building, and major utilities and airfield pavement to support the KC-46A program at Tinker AFB. Designed for LEED Silver certification, this project included risk management to address extensive phasing for multiple contractors on the site to enable all aspects of work to be synchronized and avoid jeopardizing ongoing operations. The 125,740-square-foot, first-of-its-kind hangar supports the phased buildout of the program with a single facility rather than separate hangars for each type of maintenance (depot, corrosion control and fuels). A control system will allow users to switch between modes, which adjusts systems such as HVAC, electrical and spill control to meet the specific system needs.
