F-35 Aircraft Maintenance Hangar and Flight-Line Apron Extension

Marine Corps Air Station Miramar is preparing for the January 2020 arrival of the first F-35 aircraft, the most advanced fighter jet in the world. To support this historic mission, we are providing design and construction services for various vertical and horizontal construction projects on base. 

We provided concept through full design and construction services for the 160,000 square foot hangar and parking apron that will house two F-35 squadrons and 32 aircraft. This maintenance hangar is designed to meet LEED® Silver standards.

A 100-acre apron extension includes demolition, reconstruction and extension of airfield pavements to support 20 parked F-35 aircraft and 16 parked C-130 aircraft. This addressed the Station’s need for a total upgrade to infrastructure, connections and systems, along with other incidental improvements like parking lots, roadway realignments, demolition of existing buildings and pavements and reconstruction of support buildings. Extensive site investigation work was required and included topographic surveys, utility verification surveys, hydrographic surveys, subsurface exploration and geotechnical investigation. 

Several agencies are collaborating to prepare for MCAS Miramar’s 70 F-35s anticipated by 2031.
