Contractors Invited to Submit Proposals for Air Force Museum's New Building
DAYTON -- Five qualified contractors are now invited to submit their designs for a new building at the National Museum of the United States Air Force.
Contractors in May submitted their qualifications. Of those, five contractors were selected and are now invited to present their design-build proposals by Oct. 2.
The five contractors are: The Whiting-Turner Contracting Co. of Greenbelt, Md.; M.A. Mortenson Construction of Minneapolis; Turner Construction Co. of Washington, D.C.; Hensel Phelps of Chantilly, Va.; and Archer Western/Butt Construction (JV) of Chicago.
Plans call for the construction contract to be awarded in late 2013, construction to begin in 2014, and be completed in the summer of 2015. A public opening is scheduled for late 2015.
The ultimate goal is a 224,000 square foot building that would be in similar size and shape to the museums three existing hangars. The initial size, however, will be determined by the potential contractor bids and amount of funds available from the Air Force Museum Foundation.
So far, the foundation has raised $38 million of its $46 million campaign goal.
Aircraft in the fourth building will include President Kennedys Air Force One and those from the Presidential Gallery; the XB-70 as well as many from the Research and Development (R&D) Gallery; the Crew Compartment Trainer Space Shuttle exhibit along with an expanded Space Gallery; and select global reach planes.
According to Museum Director Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jack Hudson, the new building will provide the museum with greater educational outreach opportunities.
Educating the public about military aviation is a primary mission of the museum, and the fourth building will play a significant role in our ability to tell the Air Force story, said Hudson. With this new facility, well be able to provide greater public understanding and appreciation for the Air Forces role as an integrated air, space and cyberspace force, and provide new science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning opportunities for visitors of all ages and especially our youth.
The National Museum of the United States Air Force is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day). Admission and parking are free. For more information about the museum, visit www.nationalmuseum.af.mil.
