F-35 hangar coming to Nellis AFB

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District is soliciting a contract to design and construct an aircraft hangar and maintenance unit in support of the F-35 aircraft at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. In addition, the contract requires the design and construction of a maintenance unit to support F-15 Strike Squadron aircraft being relocated under this project. All three functions shall be housed in one facility, the Army said in contract documents released Friday.

The estimated construction price range for this project is over $25 million. Estimated duration of the project is 720 calendar days. The solicitation will be available to interested parties on or about March 6.

“All offerors are advised that this project may be delayed, cancelled or revised at any time during the solicitation, selection, evaluation, negotiation and/or final award process,” the Army said in contract documents.

The second F-35 Lightning II assigned to the U.S. Air Force Weapons School arrived at Nellis on Wednesday.
