C-5 Fuel Cell Facility, 167th Airlift Wing

Project Info

Kinsley led the design-build team to complete the C-5 fuel cell facility and hangar. It’s designed to allow large, C-5 planes the ability to drive into the large hangar area for maintenance purposes.

Our materials division supplied the reinforcing bar, and our manufacturing division furnished and erected the structural steel, steel joists and metal deck. We did the site work and poured the slabs-on-grade to airfield specifications.

The main trusses of the hangar were shipped to the site in sections and assembled on site. The two main trusses were 25-feet-high and 200-feet-long. These trusses required two 200-ton cranes and one 160-ton crane working together to lift and set into place. Special foundations and shoring towers were designed to support the trusses until the permanent steel was completed.
