Project: Joint Strike Fighter Phase I, II
Location: Edwards Air Force Base, California
Client: Army Corps of Engineers
Architect: AEPC Group
Market: Aerospace
Scope: Award winning Design-Build Project involved the re-design and renovation of approximately 78,000 SF (Building 1810) and 135,000 SF (Building 1820) hangars and administration/office areas. The buildings contain a total of three hangars, which were remodeled and modernized for the accommodation and flight testing of the new JSF F-35 Lightening II war bird. The completion of the entire renovation will expand the capacity of Edwards Air Force base to test and house the upcoming Joint Strike Fighter planes as part of the government’s SDD (System Design & Development) program. The administration/office portions were reconfigured into open-space offices, private offices and new conference rooms. There was extensive SCIF construction throughout all the buildings. There were Special Access Required (SAR) and rated spaces (SCIF construction), unclassified work areas, private offices, service and maintenance areas, an instrumentation shop, fabrication shop and maintenance shops. The project also included the modernization of 12,000 SF (Building 1807), included turning this building into an entire Special Access Required (SAR) with exterior and interior SCIF assembly and the modernization of 13,700 square foot (Building 1808) into administrative facilities including SCIF areas and Special Access Required (SAR) spaces.
