In harsh climates, seacoast and areas of consistently high or changing winds, hangar entry points
(hangar bay, personnel entrance and windows, intake and exhaust vents) must be designed to

Accessibility for the Disabled
All exterior routes to the facility shall be accessible to the disabled in accordance with the current
versions of Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS) and the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA).See the Architectural Section for additional discussion concerning
accessibility requirements.
Security Fencing
Limit the use of fencing to enclose and separate areas within the vicinity of the hangar to those
conditions requiring security or the protection of life, separation of a construction site from
operational facilities, isolation of a hazardous area, or as stipulated by the Base Security
Landscape Planting
Make use of low maintenance landscape plants that are indigenous to the area. Existing mature
trees and vegetative should be retained whenever practical. Landscape design should avoid
planting next to the hangar that would permit concealment in accordance with criteria set forth in
the current version of UFC 4-010-01. As hangars are generally in industrial areas, landscaping
should be limited to entrances and other public areas.
Soil and Groundwater Conditions
Investigate soil and foundation conditions to assure suitability for economical excavation, site
preparation, building foundations, utility lines, grading, and planting. Test the bearing capacity
for the design of stable and economical facility foundations. Check groundwater elevations to
assure economic methods of construction on subsurface foundations and utilities. Investigate the
potential of contaminated soils and groundwater within the site to determine if remediation will
be required.
Utilities, which are essential to efficient operation and of adequate size to serve future
requirements, should be considered in the early planning stages. Specifically address the
adequacy of existing utilities support and include any additional needs. Planning of utility lines
should minimize utility easements, capital investments, and maintenance and repair costs.
