The Air Force was unable to meet the budget to build 15 hangers for the F-22 Fighter Jets at Elmendorf Air Force Base. With Innovation and new ideas, we reworked the entire project and an 81 million dollar facility was built for $38 million, a savings of $43 million. Also, we built our 15 hangers in 290 days, versus the competition building only 7 hangers in two and a quarter years, at more than twice the cost. We did not provide a building reduced in size, scope or quality. We worked hard and smart to give the Air Force everything they asked for and more. The Air Force was impressed.
How We Did It
43 million dollars, that’s an amazing amount of savings. It takes Innovation, lots of thought, new ideas and untried ways of doing things to save the kind of money we saved for the US Air Force. Working with their personnel, making sure our changes would allow the Air Force to achieve their mission, we came up with 12 major areas of construction that were redesigned and re-engineered. One discipline alone, mechanical and plumbing, saved 3.4 million dollars
