Delaware Air National Guard Aviation Support Facility

Paragon Engineering provided HVAC, plumbing and electrical design for a new 23,256 SF Maintenance Hangar with 25,421 SF of Allied Shops and a new 31,600 SF Unheated Aircraft Storage Facility. The project also included 24,000 SF of renovations to an existing Hangar.

The Delaware Army National Guard (DEARNG) have authorized the design of a new Army Aviation Support Facility (AASF) Add/Alt. to be located on New Castle County Airport, New Castle, Delaware. The scope of AASF will be to construct an addition and renovation to the existing and will represent the growing Army National Guard campus. The current facilities are inadequate to accommodate personnel and inadequate to house the fourteen UH-60 (Black Hawk) Aircraft and one C-12 fixed wing aircraft.

The current AASF Complex includes the existing AASF and the existing Duncan Armory, and all maintenance, storage, airfield, and allied shops to support the helicopter fleet as well as administrative and support space for full time personnel and the reserve unit.

The goal of the Delaware Army National Guard and the Design Team was to achieve a LEED Silver Level for sustainable design and energy efficiency for the new components of this facility. The existing facility was also improved for energy efficiency to the maximum extent practical.
