Cecil Field Army Aviation Support Facility

RS&H prepared the complete design for a new 35,000-square-foot, controlled-humidity preservation hangar and the remodel of 20,000 square feet of an existing Army Aviation Support Facility (AASF) hangar.  The design included energy-saving features, motorized hangar doors with seals, three storage bays for ground support equipment, and a two-vehicle garage for crash and rescue vehicles.  The 2011 Foundations of Readiness, Journal of the Army National Guard Installations Division, spotlighted the new facility, which was designed to earn LEED Gold certification.

The renovation included a new facility entry area and elevator tower, emergency operations center, and renovations to maintenance and support spaces. The existing Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) fire protection system was upgraded to meet current code requirements.  Site work included new apron pavement, new edge lighting, repairs to the existing apron, complete new layout and striping of the entire apron, signage, a new loading dock, new access road, revisions to the aircraft wash bay, relocation of water and sewer lines and new electrical, communications, water, sewer and gas utilities.
