From the early 1940s through 1959, Navy aviators were trained at Corpus Christi Naval Air Station to fly seaplanes and carrier-based aircraft. After a period of siting vacant, the Army took possession of the station to create the Army Aeronautical Depot Maintenance Center (ARADMAC) for the repair and maintenance of helicopters. In 1974, it was renamed the Corpus Christi Air Depot (CCAD).

This facility currently provides helicopter maintenance, repair, recapitalization, and overhaul capability for all U.S. military services and several foreign governments. POWER was selected to work as a subcontractor to Korte on this design-build project for the complete renovation of the 66,600 square foot Hangar 8 portion of Building 8 at CCAD.

The objective of the project was to repair and renovate the roof structure and envelope of Hangar 8 as well as to isolate utility services between Hangar 8 and areas north and south of it within Building 8 to support the future demolition of the south building. The main architectural aspect of the work involved removal of the existing clearstory, replacement of the entire roof, and repair/replacement of the building envelope and façade.

The building envelope was replaced with IMP panel walls and a new roofing system that incorporated increased insulation and a TPO membrane roof. All interior finishes within the limits of construction were renewed, including the epoxy floor coating in the hangar bay. The existing door pockets were structurally stabilized and re-clad to coordinate with new building finishes. The restrooms at mezzanines 10 and 12 were renovated with new finishes and to be ADA/ABA compliant.
