Gideon USA renovated Building (hangar) 270 at Hill Air Force Base as part of a two-phase design-build award. This was a high-profile project in a very large historic hangar facility originally built in the 1940s, with regular visits from high-ranking public and military personnel. It is the new location for the F-35 Paint and Coatings Center of Excellence with three new dedicated paint booths.
In the first phase, Gideon disassembled and removed for storage the paint mixing structures and completed the concrete in Paint Booth 2 while paint production continued in the rest of the facility. In the second phase, Gideon deconstructed the A-10 sanding booth and removed it for storage and re-assembly, then demolished the two-story production room and completed the concrete demo and replacement for paint booths 3 & 4. To complete the project, Gideon shifted to demolition and rebuild of the remaining facilities including offices, training rooms, break room, locker rooms and restrooms with substantial electrical, mechanical, HVAC, fire protection, and communications work. Gideon kept the main east and west hangar doors and the main paint booth operable throughout the project.
