The JACOBS | XChange Architects Team has been selected by the Martha’s Vineyard Airport Commission Designer Selection Committee to design the new integrated Aircraft Rescue & Fire Fighting (ARFF) and Snow Removal Equipment (SRE) facility intended to replace the airport’s existing post-war era building. The design-only phase of the work will include preparing contract documents for the demolition of the existing ARFF/ SRE Building located adjacent to the airport’s General Aviation Building, relocation of an existing airfield lighting vault, and the construction of a new ARFF/SRE building at the same location.
The proposed new ARFF/SRE building is anticipated to provide additional space for offices, training/conference room, staff day room, sleeping and bathroom/shower facilities, kitchen, laundry room, extinguishing agent storage facility, vehicle maintenance areas, SRE & other airport equipment storage, vehicle washing bays, parking areas and other miscellaneous spaces.
The anticipated 12-month design phase of this project will be overseen by Daedalus Projects Inc., the Owner’s Project Representative for the Martha’s Vineyard Airport Commission. Stay tuned for more updates on this project.
