KC-46A DUAL BAY GENERAL MAINTENANCE HANGAR

A/E full design services included architecture, engineering, interior design and programming to site adapt the KC-46A Standard Prototype Design (SPD), developed by Blair Remy for AMC & AFCEC commencing in FY11, for a two-bay maintenance hangar for the KC-46 Pegasus program's Main Operating Base (MOB) #4 at McConnell Air Force Base, NJ. Each hangar was sized to accommodate the cumulative footprint of three large frame aircraft by taking the dimensions of each and providing clearance for the greatest length, width and height.

The two-bay hangar consists of a hangar bays, tire shops, CTK, open offices, support areas, shops, locker/shower/restrooms, storage and utility rooms; and incorporates all applicable ATFP measures. The project provides covered storage to accommodate 12 carts for the E/E shops.

The two-bay hangar was designed with character compatible with the surrounding community and complementary in style to the McGuire Architectural Compatibility Plan. The structural system includes reinforced concrete foundations, steel frame and roof system, and insulated metal walls. Fire suppression consists of automatic wet pipe sprinkler systems with supplemental low-level, high expansion foam system in accordance with ETL 02-15, UCF 3-600-01, IBC, and NFPA. Security includes ATFP, lighting, and access control systems. The project includes all associated utilities, site work, communications support, fire suppression, environmental controls to include floor drains connected to holding tanks/oil separators, pavements, parking area, lighting, and landscaping.
