Event description


SAME Denver Metro Post General Membership Meeting Sep 2017

Topic: Preserving and Persevering - Historic Hangar 909 Renovation


Eric Combs and Gena Gussenbauer, D2C Architects

Bonnie Birge, Burns & McDonnel

The Colorado Air National Guard (COANG) programmed an adaptive reuse project for the installation’s 1st hangar building. Hangar 909 is the last and first place Colorado soldiers have seen when deployed for war and peace-time missions for many years. Maintaining and protecting the historical significance while repurposing was a great charge. The 460th CES worked through a very challenging programming process to gain authorization and funding with 10 different stakeholders and three funding sources supporting the project. The building’s antiquated systems presented a great challenge for LEED certification and the form of the building being set was highly dictating to the architectural opportunity. Additionally the building was riddled with asbestos containing materials, lead paint, and vermiculite. Upon starting construction, the contractor has been challenged significantly by the unknowns discovered.

  • Program
