Architect: David Thruston, AIA/S+B James
Square Footage: 29,290 (14,560/Hangar 5,730/OP’s Bldg)
S+B James lead the Design Build for Mercy Flights by updating the hangars and creating a modern space for their three aircraft. The previous, small hangars were poorly insulated, making it difficult to keep medicines at the proper temperature. The new 19,000 square foot hangar has ample space and keeps temperatures controlled. The hangar also has a maintenance area for ground ambulances. A 4,800 square foot building was constructed for dispatch, operational staff and training facilities. The new structures improved the traffic flow for Mercy Flights’ 14,000 annual patient transports and 19,000 emergency missions.
