MV-22 Hangar Marine Corps Air Station New River

Camp Lejeune, North Carolina

A hangar in the right location streamlines operations.

Though their current system was working, the Marine Corps knew they could simplify their maintenance system by moving closer to the storage facilities located 50 miles away. The Marine Corps turned to Haskell to design and build a new MV-22 Hangar facility to reduce the turnaround time on aircraft maintenance from eight hours to approximately two hours at Air Station New River.

Unsuitable soils under a taxiway apron required mitigation.

As the team prepared to expand the taxiway and apron at New River, they determined the soil underneath the taxiway and apron was an unsuitable construction foundation. Fortunately, the Haskell project team collaborated with the Government’s civil engineer to find a solution to provide cement stabilization and install an underdrain system below the apron without compromising the location.

MV-22 Mega Hangar is the world’s largest Marine Corps facility.

Previously, the air station was home to six squadrons but only able to house five of them permanently, meaning one squadron had to always be deployed. The new Marine Corps facility has plenty of room for all deployable squadrons – making it the largest Marine Corps facility in the world. This facility, designed to achieve LEED® Gold certification, includes a hangar bay, shop space, flight line operations space, two aircraft wash racks and maintenance functions.
