Mountain West Aviation Hanger Replacement

Gilbane provides new hangar at Lake Tahoe Municipal Airport

Project Included demolition of existing hangar and unique trench drains around the unit

Gilbane provided general contractor services for this 4,900 square-foot private aircraft hangar at the South Lake Tahoe Municipal Airport.  The project included demolition of the existing airport hangar and installation of a new metal building Hanger in its place, and also consisted of over-excavation for new foundation work, continuous footing substructure, site improvement of adjacent area for drainage, and overall of existing gas line infrastructure.  The building was constructed utilizing a pre-engineered metal building with insulated metal panels and pocket doors, 10×10 storage in the first floor with a similar room on the second level.  The facility also included a number of gas-fired unit heaters, complete fire & burglar alarm system.

A unique aspect of the facility and site is the non-existence of any sewer line nearby and therefore the trench drains around the building for storm water runoff were designed to run to an infiltration pit after passing through a sand-oil separator with monitoring wells.

“The Gilbane Team did an outstanding job in resolving issues.  Gilbane is going to be a real asset to the Northern Nevada Construction Industry.  With their leadership, they are great for the community and cannot be compared to other General Contractors in the area.”
