The RESPEC engineering team supports wide-ranging fixed and rotary aircraft needs for the U.S. Department of Defense. Our team worked with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District; the U.S. Air Force; and Lockheed Martin Corporation to provide new facilities for the F 35A group stationed at Eielson Air Force Base (AFB). RESPEC engineers contributed to the development of cold-climate weather shelters and apron modifications as well as training and maintenance for the new and remodel work. Historically significant hangars were upgraded for rotary aircraft at Eielson AFB and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER) for the U.S. Army, Air Force, and Air National Guard to extend the usefulness of the hangars. The upgrades included critical seismic analysis; bracing; high-performance, sustainable building heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); as well as electrical and security systems.
As part of design-bid-build, design-build, and build contractor teams, RESPEC fire protection engineers meet the unique needs of aircraft facilities during the design process by delivering critical, final-system certifications of fire alarm and suppression systems. The airfield, apron lighting, fuel storage, and hydrant-distribution systems designed by RESPEC have met the needs of U.S. AFBs and remote-radar systems along the western and northern coasts of Alaska. Our airfield planners and engineers also supported the master planning efforts at Wake Island and are currently assisting with defining the future of the Bryant Army Airfield at JBER.
RESPEC utilizes a variety of cutting edge technologies to enhance project delivery and add value to the final product. These tools can give our clients a more holistic view of their project than ever before possible, when compared to traditional methodologies.
