The Albertsons Aircraft Hangar is located on the grounds of the Boise Airport (BOI). Albertsons, LLC required a facility to house up to three corporate airplanes and a structure capable of withstanding the elements of Boise’s four distinct seasons. Construction for this project included a 17,500 square foot pre-engineered metal hangar, a 2-story aviation office building, tarmac, and parking lot.
As the general contractor, PETRA, Inc. worked closely with the architect and engineers to conduct constructability analyses. Challenges such as fire protection, seismic considerations, planning and building codes, zoning requirements, and accessibility issues were addressed by the design-build team to provide the most efficient and economical solutions for this project.
The Albertsons hangar sits on a foundation of over 200 cubic yards of concrete footings and approximately 30,000 square feet of slab-on-grade concrete. A cement-treated subbase was utilized on the project to eliminate subgrade infiltration into the base.
Due to proximity to adjacent buildings fire walls are integrated into the building facade. As required by section 412.4.6 (in accordance with NFPA 409), a foam fire suppression system was installed inside the structure.
