The renovation and addition provided space for maintenance, building support, squadron tactics and administrative offices to accommodate the Navy’s EA-18G Growler aircraft and squadrons.

The 74,000-square-foot project at the U.S. Navy’s premier Pacific Northwest naval aviation installation included the renovation of a 43,000-square-foot hangar and administrative building; and construction of a new adjoining 31,000-square-foot, two-story addition. Together, the renovation and addition provided space for maintenance, building support, squadron tactics and administrative offices to accommodate the Navy’s EA-18G Growler aircraft and squadrons. The energy-efficient facility is expected to achieve LEED Silver Certification by the US Green Building Council (USGBC).

Wiegmann’s scope of work included HVAC, plumbing and radiant heat systems, and high- and low-pressure air systems to deliver compressed air throughout the facility and the flight line for tools, work stations, aircraft cooling and pressure testing. They removed an existing steam and two-pipe heating system, retrofitted the existing two-story office building with a new HVAC system, and renovated plumbing throughout the building.
