Hangar Complex Sub Area Development


The purpose of this project was to create a Hangar Complex to accommodate C-5 aircraft with full-in hangars and to consolidate all the back hop functions into a centralized location at the site area between Buildings 722 and 712 at Dover Air Force Base.

The proposed MXG Hangar Complex consists of six phases of construction over a period of 12 years. The six phases consist of three hangar buildings and three back shop or maintenance buildings. Each phase will be designed and constructed to minimize disruption in services and relocation of maintenance equipment and personnel.

Each hangar is approximately 85,000 SF and is designed to accommodate a C-5 aircraft as a full-in hangar. Each back shop phase is projected to be approximately 80,000 SF in area. The order of which back shop functions will be incorporated in each back shop phase will be determined by the existing buildings impacted on the current or next phase of the project.
