Tuesday, July 26, 2016
Casper / Natrona County International Airport has broken ground on a new Snow Removal Equipment and Maintenance building. The $5 million dollar construction contract was awarded to Caspar Building Systems, Inc. Site work for the building is underway, and the project in anticipated to be completed by July of 2017. The 27,076 square foot facility will include 5,000 square feet of mezzanine storage and will replace several World War II buildings the Airport has been operating out of. The project will be funded with a combination of Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funds, WYDOT Aeronautics funds, and local Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) revenue.
“The current maintenance buildings were never meant as permanent structures, yet we have been operating out of them for over 60 years and they are over 70 years old,” said Glenn Januska, Airport Director. “Not only are the current buildings aged and energy inefficient, our equipment has gotten larger but the maintenance and storage areas obviously have not.”
The building will be the first phase of a larger structure designed to accommodate more and larger equipment in the future as the Airport’s needs require.
