134th Air Refueling Wing (134 ARW) Renovations

Renovations are complete on a 36,908 square-foot aircraft maintenance hangar for the 134th Air Refueling Wing (134 ARW), a unit of the Tennessee Air National Guard, stationed at McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base, in Knoxville, Tenn.  

Scope of work included sustainment of interior walls, ceilings, sound attenuation, internal and external durable surfaces to include roof and exterior metal panel wall replacement, repairs to facility paint, floor coverings, millwork, caulk, protective coatings, wall systems and hangar door structure.

Site utilities included demolition of asphalt/concrete; connecting sanitary sewer service lines to the new sanitary pump station, demolition and replacement of bollards, parking lot striping, new dumpster pads and relocation of existing, installation of washed river rock hardscape, communication tower, and handrail.

J&S Construction also installed additional steel frame support, metal insulated panels, metal barrel roof, interior walls, HVAC systems, communications wiring restrooms, utilities, access pavements, fire protection/detection, fire suppression, site work, anti-terrorism force protection measures, erosion control, drainage structures and landscape.

Due to a high degree of required coordination and expertise among various trades, J&S Construction was also contracted to remove the existing fire suppression system and install a new low-level High Expansion Foam System. Many flammable liquids cannot be controlled or put out by a traditional sprinkler system. Foam fire systems are able to separate fuel from air, making them the best fire protection system for companies that handle or processes flammable liquids, including gas and oils.

This new foam system is designed to provide uniform distribution of foam over the protected area and conform to the latest National Fire Protection Association standards. In addition to being the recommended fire suppression system for a number of businesses, a foam fire suppression system is ideal for large areas that need to be filled quickly in case of a fire emergency. Because a high-expansion foam spreads rapidly (and can expand up to 1,000 times its original size), it can swiftly cover a bigger space in need of fire suppression. High expansion foams are best suited for three-dimensional fires, but they also are utilized to suppress liquid spill fires.

This contract required that construction comply to the Air National Guard (ANG) Sustainable Design Policy with a design goal of ANG Meritable which is modeled after U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® certification process.

One theme remained important to 134 ARW: the branding identity of the Volunteer State. In transferring from the ‘Orange Hangar’ to the current design, it was requested to incorporate the iconic checkerboard orange on to the exterior of the facility.

With the company having completed more than 15 projects with the TN National Guard over the last decade, this contract marked J&S Construction’s first pairing with the 134th Air Refueling Wing.
