Pond, in a Joint Venture with FSB, was awarded a contract by Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Washington for architectural and engineering services for the Hangar 21 Complex. This aviation facility at Joint Base Andrews will support the proposed Boeing 747-8, a four-engine, wide-bodied commercial aircraft, which will be modified to fit the Air Force’s needs. This aircraft will be configured to allow the Heads of State to fulfill their roles while on board.
Although the detailed scope of the project is for official release only, the complex includes a two-bay maintenance hangar, administration offices and a parts storage warehouse, an entry control building, and several other out-buildings for fire pumps, aerospace equipment storage, and other functions. The complex includes a dedicated fuel storage and distribution system, including hydrants. A connector taxiway, apron, parking and roadways are part of the 40-acre site. The greenfield project required primary power distribution, water, sewer, communications, fire protection, water and natural gas.
