Selected Projects List

Flight Simulator Facility, Nellis AFB, Nevada

Background: Black & Veatch designed a new Flight Simulator Facility for the Air Force which houses the F-16 Mission Training Center (MTC), used for mission simulation, continuation and upgrade training.  This state-of-the-art facility, designed to a LEED Silver Certification level rating, allows for the simultaneous configuration of four (4) F-16 flight simulators linked together.  Black & Veatch provided 100% Architectural & Engineering and Interior design documentation, specifications, telecom/IT and electronic security, environmental management, AT/FP design, 3-D color renderings and 4-D electronic building information modeling (BIM). 

Intelligence Production Complex, Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio                      

Background: Black & Veatch integrated the National Air and Space Intelligence Center’s (NASIC) Mission requirements into this cutting edge project, designed to a LEED Certified level rating, while respecting the Wright-Patterson AFB architectural heritage and overall site development master planning initiative.  The new 200,000 SF facility design was a departure from the austere appearance of adjacent structures and created a unique architectural “focal point” to anchor the north end of the military campus.  In addition to the 2006 AFMC Design Awards Citation Award, this project also won an Award of Merit in the Design Category of the 2007 USAF Design Awards Program.
