Project Overview

Robins Air Force Base is home of Georgia Air National Guard 116th Bomb Wing, flying the B-1B bomber, and  is the main U.S. operating base for the E-8 Joint STARS.

New site development to support the B-1 Bomber consisted of 91,000 LF of underground utilities (sanitary, water, gas, and electric), 500,000 CY of earthmoving, an aircraft parking apron and taxiways with 124,000 SY of rigid pavement and 102,000 SY of flexible pavement.

The project called for Air Force Type III pressured fuel systems complete with pump station, 7,500 BBL of above-ground storage tanks, over 6,000 LF of 10-inch and 1,000 LF of 4-inch stainless steel JP-4 fuel piping feeding G-type hydrant outlets.

The project also included a CASS (Consolidated Aircraft Support System) for environmental control of aircraft on the aprons.
