C-17 Corrosion Control Hangar

C-17 Corrosion Control Hangar

This was a Design/Build hangar for the United States Air Force built at Hickam Air Force Base, HI. This “hybrid” building system made up of both structural steel and pre-engineered metal building components. The 50,000 SqFt by 90 foot tall hangar utilized a structural steel frame, with open web joists, light gauge zee girts, insulated metal wall panels, as well as un-insulated single skin panels, and a Butler MR24 roof system. This project was supplied and erected by Sure Steel. All cladding and trims were designed and detailed by Sure Steel. Sure Steel worked over 21,631 hours on this project without a lost time accident or injury. Special rigging was required to erect the long span trusses that weighed in excess of 50,000 pounds.

F-22 Squadron Operations/AMU

The 77,000 SqFt Squadron Operations/AMU hangar houses complete maintenance and operations functions for the 199th Fighter Squadron at Hickam Air Force Base for the Hawaii Air National Guard. The structure comprises approximately 34,215 SqFt of administrative area and 42,785 SqFt of hangar space. Sure Steel was contracted by Watts Constructors to erect the 1,278 tons of structural steel totaling over 13,500 man hours. Planning and coordination was vital in the installation of the roof trusses. The hangar had a clear span of over 200’ making the trusses very heavy. Sure Steel built the trusses in ‘kits’ on the ground and using a duo of cranes, installed the trusses in segments. The project has received Platinum certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.

FA-22 Fueled Composite Aircraft Overhaul Test Facility

As part of the Design/Build team, Sure Steel, Inc. was contracted by Big-D Construction Company to design, fabricate and install all structural steel framing, insulated wall panels, sliding hangar doors, overhead doors, and overhead bridge cranes in this two-phase, 170,000 square foot complex. The building complex consisted of six divided areas, which included a four paint booth bays, two large clear span flight test hangars, one blast booth bay three maintenance bays (that can be adapted to paint booths at a later time), and a support area. The facility utilized sustainable design systems rated by the USGBC’s LEED rating system as Silver certifiable. The project team had over 400,000 man hours on this project without any safety incidents.

FA-22 Heavy Maintenance Facility Phase II

As part of the Design/Build team, Sure Steel, Inc. was contracted by Big-D Construction Company to design, fabricate and install all structural steel framing, insulated wall panels, sliding hangar doors, overhead doors, and overhead bridge cranes in this two-phase, 170,000 square foot complex. The building complex consisted of six divided areas, which included a four paint booth bays, two large clear span flight test hangars, one blast booth bay three maintenance bays (that can be adapted to paint booths at a later time), and a support area.

C-130 Hangar

C-130 Hangar

As a Design/Build project for the United States Air Force, the C-130 Hangar at Hill Air Force Base was a Hybrid system made up of both structural steel and pre-engineered metal building components. The 60,000 SqFt hangar utilized a structural steel frame, with open web joists, light gauge zee girts, single skin wall panels and a Butler MR24 roof system. Sure Steel worked side by side with URS Corporation and Needham and Associates to meet the strict design requirements. No NCR’s were issued by the Corps of Engineers and the project was completed ahead of schedule. The steel was fabricated and erected in accordance with MBMA and AISC standards and the project was awarded “Metal Building of the Year” by the Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association for 2004. Sure Steel worked over 14,500 man hours without any safety incidents.
