The Superhangar at Kansas City International Airport needed a comprehensive condition assessment. After evaluating the unique parabolic and arch-shaped roof, we provided a summary report with material testing results, repair recommendations, and construction documents for partial roof replacement.

About the project

The Superhangar at the Kansas City International Airport is used for aircraft storage, maintenance, and repair. Our team performed a condition assessment and study of the existing roofing and roof structural conditions and a preliminary design for repair options for the Superhangar structure. The roof is a unique architectural/structural design with parabolic and arch shapes and was initially covered with a spray foam roofing system. The assessment included observations of waterproofing condition, water infiltration, and structural deficiencies inside and outside the roof.

In addition to overall roofing/roof structure observations, field sampling and evaluation testing of concrete materials were performed. The summary report included all observations, material testing results, repair recommendations, and opinions on probable construction costs. We also prepared construction documents for a partial roof replacement of various roof pods.
