Gulfstream Hangar Expansion, Brunswick Golden Isles Airport, GA
Shambaugh & Son (Shambaugh) provided new construction and fire protection services for Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation’s (Gulfstream) hangar expansion project at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport in Georgia. The expansion added 110,000 square feet to the facility – a substantial increase capable of housing 100 new staff members.
In order to manage a project of this scope, Shambaugh’s team of fire safety experts leveraged their highly efficient design-build approach coupled with years of field experience. The finished hangar features cutting-edge fire protection systems, which help Gulfstream maintain an exceptionally safe work environment for their employees.
Gulfstream determined their Brunswick hangar facility needed an expansion in order to better support their existing service center. The service center plays a key role in Gulfstream’s operations, offering personal, one-stop convenience for major inspections, installations, and modifications to business jet aircraft.
The project included a wide array of fire protection solutions, and Shambaugh self- performed all of the work they provided to the service center.
During the project, Shambaugh’s team delivered the following:
- Design and installation of two 150,000-gallon bolted ground storage tanks
- Three 3,000-gallons-per-minute diesel fire pumps
- Two automatic high expansion foam systems
- One foam-water hand hose system
- One wet riser
- 1,121 fire sprinkler heads
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, markets, and services business jet aircraft. Since its founding in the late 1950’s, Gulfstream has produced more than 2,000 aircraft.
