This will be the second F-35 maintenance hangar project to be delivered by Michael Baker-Welsh Federal team at the installation.

Michael Baker International has been selected as part of the design-build team to deliver a new F-35B Lightning II aircraft maintenance hanger.

The hanger will be built at the US Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point in North Carolina.

Michael Baker will serve as a subconsultant to Walsh Federal.

This will be the second F-35 maintenance hangar project at the installation to be delivered by the team.

The team will design and construct a low-rise, two-storey, two squadron module Type 1 maintenance hanger for F-35B aircraft along with crew and equipment space, high bay space and administrative area.

The maintenance hanger’s construction and design features will include aircraft maintenance workstations, hangar workstation kiosks, seismic construction, alarm systems, communication connections at parking locations, explosive material storage, hazardous material storage and sound attenuation and vaults.

Michael Baker will offer design services through April 2023, and construction administration services through 2025.

The scope of works will include telecommunication and security system design, design management and execution of interior design, mechanical/plumbing, structural and electrical engineering services.

Besides, the company will provide cybersecurity and anti-terrorism/force protection compliance; fire protection engineering and life safety analysis; sustainability; and site/civil and landscape architecture.

Michael Baker International National Market Lead – Navy John Alberghini said: “With addition of this aircraft maintenance hangar to the installation, MCAS Cherry Point continues their progress in transitioning to 5th generation capability F-35B aircraft and securing US air supremacy moving into coming decades.”
