- Client: National Guard Bureau
- Contract Amount: $25,423,300
The F-22 Low Observable/Composite Repair Facility (LO/CRF) project is located on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, the LO/CRF facility was the first of nine projects that will form the Hawaii Air National Guard’s (HIANG) new F-22 Raptor Maintenance Facility complex. The F-22 Raptor is the United States new Air Superiority Fighter and will serve as the replacement for the aging F-15 Eagles that have occupied Hickam’s airfield since 1987. The new 36,000 square foot LO/CRF complex involved the construction of two hangar bays serving as specialized paint booths to maintain and repair the F-22’s exterior skin, which allows the aircraft to be invisible to radar; maintenance support spaces; administrative office spaces; utility spaces; and life safety support spaces.
