STRATCOM Gate – Offutt Air Force Base, NE

STRATCOM Gate – Offutt Air Force Base, NE

The STRATCOM Gate at Offutt Air Force Base included the design and construction of a new Gatehouse, four ID Check Stations, an Overwatch Guard Station and a new entry gate canopy that will cover 6,540 square feet.  This is the main Entry Control Facility for the AFB and was designed to make an initial impact upon people entering the Base.

 

$10.8 Million

Completed in 2012

 

This project was a high profile project with many design and construction challenges.  Since this is the main gate for the Base, it was imperative to maintain operations and traffic flow throughout the construction period.  This required the design team to carefully consider phasing and constructability throughout the life of the project and design.  Traffic lanes were rearranged to help with traffic flow onto the Base, comply with AT/FP and to better serve the needs of the existing COV Inspection Facility and the Visitors Control Center.
