Donaldson Army Aviation Support Facility
Greenville, South Carolina
The 115,000-SF aviation support facility includes four CH-64 hangar bays at 32,226-SF for helicopter maintenance, a 20,020-SF operations AMU facility, a 24,648-SF unheated helicopter storage hangar for another three CH-64 bays, a 10,000-SF shop area, 3,300-SF of ground support equipment storage, and other support facilities. The facility includes adequate provision of administrative, supply, classroom, medical, locker, and physical fitness areas totaling nearly 60,000-SF. Classrooms consist of lecture, testing, and assembly halls, instructor offices, learning center and library.
The site is over 27 acres but is severely constrained by the obstacle-free area of the adjacent runway, the security stand-off distances and a more than 30 foot grade differential across the property. These constraints presented a significant challenge for the master planning of the project that included the current program plus a future 40% expansion. All National Guard projects are designed to meet a minimum requirement of LEED Silver Certification.
