Project Details

Indianapolis Executive Airport

Noblesville, IN


Woolpert prepared plans and specifications for the design development of the Beck’s corporate hangar at the Indianapolis Executive Airport. Due to the complex nature of the design components, the multiple construction partners of the owner, regulating agencies and the scheduling needs of the client, Woolpert established an online project document repository to facilitate information sharing. The team also matched the building’s planned exterior finishes to Beck’s existing building structures across the U.S.

Key elements of the project included the following:

Architecture—Two-story, multi-room facility layout with second-floor elevator access and glass overlook into hangar bay. Fuel system enclosure design, including ventilation of structure around two 12,000-gallon jet A-tanks.

Structural—Coordination with pre-engineered building design and manufacturer. 40,000-gallon underground storage tank facility for fire protection system. Foundation and framing support for all-glass, 120-by-28-foot hydraulic door.

MEP—Complete electrical systems including generator backup of the hangar. Temperature-controlled hangar bay and offices that include fans, heated floors/sidewalks, a two-boiler HVAC system and chillers. LED lighting installations.

Site/Civil—Airport drainage system modifications with design and site development grading. Concrete and asphalt apron parking lot and sidewalk new pavement (with heat).
