The Korte Company was awarded the 74,500-square-foot construction and modernization project at the Naval Air Base in Whidbey Island, Washington. The existing, 43,700-square-foot hangar modernization project included upgrades to building codes and standards. The facility will accommodate six EA-18G aircraft and three EA-18G aircraft squadrons.
A 30,000-square-foot, two-story addition adjoins the existing hangar. Together, the modernization and addition include the installation of new maintenance shop spaces, maintenance and building support spaces as well as squadron tactics and administration uses on the second floor.
The facility is expected to achieve LEED Silver Certification per U.S. Green Building Council requirements.
