As the primary contractor, Straub Construction was charged with constructing a 29,009 SF pre-engineered metal Maintenance Hangar, a 13,756 SF Aircraft Maintenance unit, as well as a large administrative area which surrounds two sides of the hangar and ties into the existing taxiway.
The hangar/aircraft maintenance unit was built to prepare, service and maintain C-130 aircraft; supporting the beddown of the Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) mission at Davis Monthan AFB and the activation of a C-130 squadron with 10 aircraft. The new facility improves readiness efforts and enables the CSAR squadron to be fully functional; filling a 28 year need.
Construction elements for the hangar include site improvements, utilities, landscaping and irrigation, roads, parking, split faced block, reinforced concrete foundation and floor slab, pre-engineered metal building components, standing seam metal roof, fire detection/ protection, special security enhancements, specialized heating and air conditioning with temperature and humidity limitations, and communications support.
