Greenside Type II Maintenance Hangar - Marine Corps Base Quantico, VA
The new Greenside Type II Maintenance Hangar will be an approximately 60,000 sf facility that will be built adjacent to the Greenside Type I Maintenance Hangar for the U.S. Marine Corps Air Facility at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. The Greenside Type II Hangar will function along with the 56,000 sf Greenside Type I Hangar and the 180,000 sf Whiteside Hangar to support the HMX-1, which is the helicopter transport squadron for the President of the United States.
The Greenside Type II Hangar will provide required maintenance space for support of projected loading of CH-53 helicopters and future MV-22 aircraft. The new 60,000 sf facility will include one module of standard Type II hangar space with adjacent multi-story support spaces, including maintenance and shop areas, tool rooms, storage areas, medical/dental facilities, and office/administrative areas.
An exposed exo-skeleton superstructure will function to create a cantilevered roof structure, thus allowing for a column-free hangar bay. The building exterior will consist of a brick veneer exterior with cast stone accents and a prominent cornice and parapet.
Pond is currently providing RFP preparation services for this project which includes basic design services for civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and telecommunications engineering. In addition, Pond & Company will provide post construction award services (PCAS).
