Huizenga Aviation Hangar

Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Airport, FL

Huizenga Aviation and Spitfire Properties operate three (3) large aircraft hangars and office support at this 12-acre aircraft hangar complex. CTA prepared contract documents for the surface water management, water and sanitary sewer systems. Due to the size of aircraft that is housed at the facility, the large Huizenga Aviation hangar has a state of the art foam deluge fire suppression system. The deluge system discharges 5,000 GPM for 1 hour when activated, and is collected in the floor drain system and routed through a stand-alone drainage system to a retention/holding area capable of storing 300,000 gallons of water. The aircraft pavement is designed to withstand repeated 100,000-pound aircraft loadings. Craven Thompson also prepared and processed the site plan for the facility.
