FTW373A Warm Storage Hangar

Fort Wainwright, Alaska

The historic character of Ladd Army Airfield is reinforced by the barrel vaulted roof form and symmetrical proportions of the building design.

This 56,000 SF helicopter hangar is located at the historic LADD Army Airfield on Fort Wainwright Army Base. The Warm Storage Hangar is a clear-span, high-bay open structure designed to provide heated storage for seven Blackhawk helicopters. The building features a high-performance envelope for the arctic environment that includes R-60 walls and R-90 roof insulation values.

The thermal envelope and high-efficiency mechanical/electrical systems provided the baseline for meeting the government’s High Performance Sustainable Building Standards.
