Charlotte-based Hendrick Construction has won a $26 million contract to build a 111,000-square-foot helicopter facility for the South Carolina National Guard.
The project is slated for the west end of the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center in Greenville. It will feature two helicopter-maintenance hangars and a central support area to facilitate flight operations.
The central support area will feature an engine shop for aircraft maintenance and repair, men’s and women’s lockers, flight instruction and operations rooms, an emergency aviation operations center and offices for administrative support.
The 30-acre site will house three South Carolina Army National Guard units with 70 full-time personnel and 145 part-time soldiers.
Construction will begin this month and is scheduled to be finished in two years.
Hendrick is a commercial construction contractor.
