Lately we have talked a lot about the core closure, but there’s a lot of action going on outside the terminal too. Our Facilities Department expansion project is underway, and it includes some developments that our staff is excited about.
This expansion project includes the following developments:
- Facilities Administration Building construction: This space will measure approximately 5,000 square feet and include the Facilities Department offices, a training room, locker rooms, a break room and library.
- Equipment Storage Building construction: This important structure, measuring about 6,000 square feet, will be used to house various airfield maintenance equipment including mowers, tractors, snowplows and other snow removal equipment.
- Fuel Farm relocation: We will be moving the existing fuel farm equipment for diesel and unleaded fuels as part of this expansion project. This fuel farm provides fuel not only for airfield maintenance equipment, but for airline ground service equipment and other tenant operational needs as well.
For now, the structural steel for the administration building is in place, and the framing work will soon follow. The fuel farm relocation is also underway with the new canopy recently erected.
This is a big project and we are grateful for the team we have in place: the Project Design Team is led by WK Dickson and supported by local architect DP3. Civil Engineer is led by Greenville firm Seamon Whiteside. Other local firms involved include Peritus Engineers for mechanical and plumbing, Burdette Engineering for electrical and Michael Simpson and Associates for structural engineering.
Stay tuned for all the construction updates and Flyer Fact Fridays!
