The architects created a Hangar Complex to accommodate C-5 aircraft with full-in hangars and to consolidate all the back-up functions into a centralized location at the site area between Buildings 722 and 712 at Dover Air Force Base.
The proposed MXG Hangar Complex consists of six phases of construction over a period of 12 years. The six phases consist of three hangar buildings and three back shop or maintenance buildings. Each phase will be designed and constructed to minimize disruption in services and relocation of maintenance equipment and personnel.
Each hangar is approximately 89,000 SF including back-shops and is designed to accommodate a C-5 aircraft as a full-in hangar. The order of which back shop functions will be incorporated in each back shop phase will be determined by the existing buildings impacted on the current or next phase of the project.
