Construction will begin April 15, 2013 (7:00am): Contractor will begin demolition of the existing Airport Managers Office. Construction work hours are 7:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday.

The Project is outside of the airfield / apron areas and will not directly impact aircraft, vehicle, tenant, or FBO operations. The Airport Managers Office has been relocated to a temporary trailer. The Pilots lounge has been relocated to a temporary trailer adjacent to the Airport Managers Office. The main gate (Gate #1) will be unaffected by this construction. The project will also include work on Texas Avenue with separate Tenant Bulletins being issued prior to those activities.

The construction work will consist of site work, utilities and construction of a 12,000 square foot building. Pre-construction activities are complete with the construction fencing securing the site and the contractor’s trailer on-site. Personnel, materials and equipment will access the site from Texas Avenue. The project is scheduled for completion in December of 2013.

Updated Tenant Bulletins will be sent out at major milestones during the project and prior to the National Championship Air Races. A ceremonial groundbreaking is being planned and details will be coming soon.
