Repair and Modernization of Hangar 57
Location: NAS Corpus Christi, TX
Client: NAVFAC Southeast
EMR was responsible for the two-phase renovation of Hangar 57 to bring the hangar into compliance with applicable codes and regulations and restore its structural integrity. The renovation included 40,000 square feet of hangar space and 20,000 square feet of office space. Engineers and testing labs were employed to determine the extent of repair required to the existing structure.
The project involved lead abatement and epoxy painting of the structural steel in the hangar; demolition and replacement of the air conditioning system including a new chiller, boiler, air intake units, and fan coil units; installation of new compressed air lines, compressors, and tanks; interior office renovations including asbestos abatement, new ceilings, and floors; complete renovation of restrooms; and new site and runway paving. EMR also assessed the condition of the foam fire suppression and wet fire sprinkler systems and made all required repairs. Hangar 57 remained in operation during all phases of this project.
