Honolulu International Airport (HNL) - Aircraft Rescue & Fire Fighting Facility Improvements

Honolulu, Hawaii

Honolulu International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the United States, required expanded aircraft rescue and fire fighting station (ARFF) facilities to make room for new ARFF trucks, as well as facility improvements to make the existing space safer and more functional. LEO A DALY provided full architectural and engineering services for the improvements to ARFF Station No. 2. Phase I included a geotechnical survey and approximately 16,000-SF of new asphaltic concrete pavement to connect the ARFF facility to Taxiway RA. Phase II included a hazardous material survey of the existing building, the addition of a new 5,700-SF, 3-bay apparatus bay and watch room, equipment and suits storage, the addition of a personnel fitness room, modifications to the ventilation system, and related electrical work.
