Trajan Hangar Facility, Austin Bergstrom International Airport
Construction Delivery Method: Design Build
As part of a design-build team, JQ provided structural engineering services for Trajan Flight Support’s new aircraft hangar at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. The 36,000 SF, 30 foot tall hangar area was equipped with a 300 foot long telescoping hangar door to accommodate up to a G5 aircraft, as well as numerous other smaller planes at the same time. In addition, the 6,000 SF office space and restrooms accessed directly from the hangar area provides ample multi-tenant flight support functions. To meet the stringent environmental and life safety requirements for this structure, the building was equipped with pre-action fire sprinklers and a 30, 000 gallon hazardous materials tank to capture any fuel contaminated water in the event of a fire. The new hangar accommodates anywhere from six to ten private aircraft.
