Construction Underway At Holloman

Contractors for the Hensel Phelps Construction Company are placing concrete blocks during the construction of a Remotely Piloted Aircraft maintenance hangar on the Holloman Air Force Base flightline.

The new hangar will accommodate the 9th Attack Squadron and will be the first of two identical hangars with more than 60,000 square feet, capable of holding up to 12 MQ-9 Reapers.

With an average of 65 workers per day, the project is scheduled to be completed by July 2013 and is a joint initiative between the 49th Civil Engineer Squadron, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Hensel Phelps Construction Company.
