Fort Hood Unmanned Aerial Systems Maintenance Hangar

Fort Hood

Walter P Moore provided civil, traffic, and water resources engineering for the design-build project. The project was designed using Civil 3D as the main BIM platform for coordination. The project required extensive site development design. Site elements included 0.5 miles of entry road extension and new access roads, a POV parking lot, five storm retention/detention ponds that meet Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) Section 438 requirements, an AFFF detention pond and diversion system, two remote fire pumping stations, more than 5 miles of 16-inch water main, a 3,000-GPM domestic water pumping station, and an elevated 500,000-gallon water storage tank that would serve the surrounding post buildings, new hangar, and future hangar for both domestic and fire fighting demands. All utilities were designed to accommodate a future, adjacent hangar. Storm water quality management planning was designed as a master plan to include the adjacent future hangar.

The project is LEED Silver Certified. The site development features include five storm water retention/detention ponds that meet or exceed EISA Section 438 requirements. All sidewalks are porous concrete walks that drain onto the surrounding landscape and retention/detention ponds. The parking was designed to meet fuel efficient vehicle parking requirements.
