At the Elmendorf-Richardson Air Force Base (JBER AFB), Anchorage, AK, Code Unlimited conducted a feasibility analysis of the existing construction, fire alarm system and fire suppression required while modifying five existing hangars adjacent to the eastside flight paths for the F22s to determine if it was possible to install an interior fueling system. Our feasibility study concluded it was cost prohibitive to safely add the fueling system and recommended that the base construct a remote exterior refueling location. JBER AFB is home to the 477th Fighter Group is an Air Reserve unit.
A Later project at JBER AFB included engineering support for the addition of a new building. Responsible for the Fire Protection Basis of Design for the project, acting as the Fire Protection Engineer of Record. We supported the project with reviews for construction of new POL (petroleum, oils and lubricants) building and wrote the basis of design requirements and test criteria for protecting the structure.
The Petroleum, Oil and Lubricants Flight Building and the 673rd Logistics Readiness Squadron, support any aircraft landing that needs refueling. Whether it is Guard, the 3rd Wing, or distinguished visitors like Air Force One, POL is the shop that supplies the fuel to the respective aircraft. Through Code Unlimited’s guidance and support, the facility managers were able to make design and construction decisions on how to best maintain the services of these facilities.
