State Command Headquarters & Operations Complex

Location: Salt Lake City, Utah

Client: Utah Air National Guard

Burns & McDonnell provided award-winning design services for this 74,000-square-foot complex to consolidate and house the Utah Air National Guard’s State Command Headquarters, Wing Headquarters and the 151st Air Refueling Wing’s operations functions.

The new 44,000-square-foot, two-story Command and Operations Center includes executive offices, JAG offices, administrative support areas and conference rooms. Other areas include a command and control center, intelligence center, mission planning and briefing, and other specialized space. The remainder of the facility includes operations and training areas.

The existing 26,000-square-foot Squadron Operations Complex for the 151st Air Refueling Wing underwent renovation to support new missions and incorporates a 4,000-square-foot addition. Additional space was added for offices, classrooms, mission-briefing room, mobility storage and ready-room and other administrative and support areas.

Extensive pre-wired workstations were provided throughout the open office areas of both facilities. Mechanical and electrical systems include HVAC, plumbing, fire protection and detection, electrical distribution and lighting, LAN, raised-floor computer rooms and secured and non-secured communications.

Site improvements include relocating and extending existing water, wastewater, storm water and electrical utilities. Traffic improvements included reconfigured parking areas and roads to handle additional traffic flows and new curbs, gutters and walks. Extensive landscaping was coordinated and provided for both facilities, including site drainage and erosion control.
