The ceremony, at Wheeler Army Airfield, was attended by personnel from the US Army Garrison Hawaii, the 25th Infantry Division, and the US Army Corps of Engineers.

This $80m project intends to replace the 90-year-old World War II era facilities.

Once complete, the project will provide the 25th Infantry Division’s Combat Aviation Brigade with a modern hanger, equipped with new technology and high-speed connectivity.

The hanger will have sufficient space to support pilots, crews, and their aircraft during their missions in the country and abroad.

The facility is projected to be completed in three years. It is being delivered by Honolulu-based firm Hensel Phelps.

US Army Garrison Hawaii commander Colonel Daniel Misigoy said: “For 90 years, these hangars have truly supported the army well. Now, we look to the future, and this hangar will house the future generation of army aircraft and aviators.

“Serving our nation here in the most consequential region, and at one of the most consequential times in our nation’s history, our future army aviators will train on and maintain army aircraft that they will fly alongside our partner nations across the Pacific.”

The US Army Corps of Engineers, located at Fort Shafter, will be responsible for the project management.

The new hangar is among the first of three maintenance structures that will be developed to back the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade.

In October last year, Parsons earned a $1.1bn multiple award task order contract (MATOC) from the US Corps of Engineers (USACE).
