The Korte Company provided design-build services for the multi-aircraft hangar for the 76th Aircraft Maintenance Group at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma. The hangar houses three KC-135’s, three E-3’s, two B-52’s, two B-1B’s, and two (2) Airbus A330’s.

The 164,443 square foot facility performs a number of services, including programmed depot maintenance for a variety of aircraft. The hangar includes open and private offices, administration areas, training areas, conference rooms, break room, latrine/shower areas, open bay work area, technical order library, and building utility rooms.

The administration structure is constructed of two-story masonry construction and is located on the second floor between the hangar bays. The ground floor function of the administration wing includes a break room, offices, and support areas. Locker rooms and support rooms are located adjacent to the multi-bay along the east side.

A total of 106,800 SF of Portland cement airfield pavement was placed as a part of this contract. Existing pavement was removed and recycled. To mitigate fracturing of the existing pavement, the pavement was saw-cut in two locations. The new pavement section was 15” of Portland cement concrete over a 10” asphaltic concrete drainage layer over geotextile separator fabric over a 10” lime-stabilized subgrade.
