A working aircraft hangar, the EAA chapter's facility required solutions to improve energy efficiency and meet increased wind uplift demands. This meant designing a single-ply overlay system that attached to structural elements of the roof instead of the existing standing seam metal panels to achieve the necessary wind uplift ratings. This was necessary to overcome the increased uplift demands imposed by the hangar's location and problems typically associated with aircraft hangers when the hanger doors are opened. FEI also provided bidding, construction administration, and quality assurance services for the project.
