Cheyenne Airmotive

This project was completed in 1998. The hangar portion of the building (25,000sf) was divided in half, providing for aircraft maintenance facilities on one side and two state-of-the-art aircraft painting booths on the other side (one of only a limited number of facilities in the continental U.S.). The paint booths were designed for both paint stripping and paint application, both of which require different HVAC systems. The massive HVAC equipment was located above the booths and incorporated sophisticated air filtering systems. Given the type of paint used in the process, a water treatment facility was incorporated which removes the heavy metal content of the paint before releasing into the Cheyenne water treatment system. The north and south two-story portions of the building, comprising 24,000sf, house the offices, parts storage, employee break room, restrooms, and manufacturing areas for the business.
