IMPROVING BASE PERFORMANCE THROUGH A MORE FUNCTIONAL FACILITY

The Hawaii Air National Guard’s 199th Fighter Squadron, located at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, had just changed aircraft from the F-15 Eagle to the F-22 Raptor, requiring that the existing jet engine shop be given a major upgrade. Designing and constructing an efficient and sustainable space was top priority.

CHALLENGE

Built in 1970, the existing jet engine shop at Joint Base Pearl Harbor- Hickam was made up of just over 32,000 square feet, comprised of a two-story steel and concrete masonry unit (CMU) structure. Designed to serve the F-15 Eagle, the facility’s features were far out of date.

The team discovered that the building core itself, as well as the surrounding ancillary support buildings, did not comply with Antiterrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or local seismic and wind requirements. Additionally, the facility would need to meet certain environmental requirements for energy savings, water usage and sustainability.

Finally — because the squadron of F-22 Raptors, the Air Force’s new stealth tactical fighter aircraft, had been introduced at the base — the redesigned facility would need to provide critical support and maintenance functions for the new aircraft to continue the base’s defense mission.
