The FTW 357 hangar project provides critical infrastructure for the readiness of the Army’s Aviation Task Force at Fort Wainwright, Alaska. PDC’s completed the civil engineering design. Key civil design elements included:
- Hangar foundation earthwork and site grading
- POV parking for the hangar as well as future adjacent facilities
- Upgrade of Montgomery Road including addition of center turn lane, a pedestrian path, a signalized intersection, and a roundabout
The project involved a 16.6-acre hangar site and 5,000 feet of roadway. Design elements included concrete and asphalt paving, security fence, site utilities, aircraft paving markings and moorings, as well as roadway signage, markings, and signalization.
PDC was the Civil Designer of Record responsible for the site layout (including addressing anti-terrorism/force protection requirements), grading, storm water management, utilities, fire protection piping to multiple hangars, and apron striping and marking. Roadway design included DOR for alignment and grading. The civil design required close coordinated with other designers including Doyon Utilities, geotechnical engineer, site electrical, mechanical, anti-terrorism/force protection and landscape designers.
