This design/build project involved constructing a new 30,677 SF facility to support the bed down of the C-17 mission at Hickam AFB. The facility provides aircraft hangar and nose dock areas, an aircraft fuel system maintenance shop, and administrative offices. 

As the Architect, RIM provided building design reminiscent of the historical airfield architectural style from the 1930’s to the 1940’s, utilizing art deco elements. The design is a steel super structure with CMU walls and EIFS finish on the lower half of the structure, and metal siding supported by structural steel on the upper half of the structure. A sloped standing seam metal roofing assembly was incorporated for the roof of the structure. The hangar contains a concrete floor with special epoxy floor finish.

RIM was the lead design firm for a major seismic retrofit at the main terminal of the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. Originally built 50 years ago, both Concourse B and the Ticket Lobby were updated to make the structures safer in the event of an earthquake. The project included modern infrastructure for baggage handling and screening, energy-efficient heating and ventilation, and state-of-the-art telecommunications and security systems.

A multitude of architecture and interior design updates in Concourses A and B as well as the Ticket Lobby have brought the overall level of service to customers and tenants up to the same high-quality standard present in the recently completed Concourse C. The renovated spaces are washed with natural light and allow for the completion of concession spaces, encouraging all the major air carriers to be conveniently co-located under one roof.

 

As the aviation planning and design consultant, HNTB worked with RIM, and Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB), the program manager, to plan the renovations, focusing on programming, right-sizing, and making sure all elements of the reinvented structure worked together. PCL Construction Services, Inc. acted as the Construction Manager-at-Risk; provided demolition and abatement service; installed structural upgrades and glazing; implemented seismic upgrades developed by Reid Middleton; and completed architectural finishes, roofing, and mechanical and electrical system upgrades. The work was accomplished while the airport remained fully occupied and functional.
