Project Description: Rehabilitation of the existing South Hangar at 200 DaVinici Drive, So. Burlington, to convert the existing hangar building into an Aviation Technical Center for the Burlington School District. Reuse existing building shell and utility services and fully reconstruct the building interior to house the Burlington School District's Aviation Tech program. Constructed in 1984, the existing hangar building is approximately 33,000 square feet consisting of open hangar space, offices, and an elevated storage mezzanine. The two-story office/mezzanine space occupies approximately 4,400 square feet and is located along the east side of the building. The building is constructed of cast-in-place concrete foundations with a Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB) superstructure. The mezzanine area is constructed of structural steel girders and joists with a three-inch total thickness concrete slab-on-deck floor.

The building has most recently been used for aircraft storage and maintenance. As a part of this project, the building is proposed to be renovated into spaces designed for high school and adult technical education.

The project start date is September 2024, to be completed by August 2025.

This project is being funded by federal Congressional Grant funds which will require contractors to follow federal grant requirements.
