McCall Airport SRE
CSHQA provided schematic design and construction documentation for this economical, 4,267 sf, pre-engineered metal building. The McCall Airport snow removal equipment building is designed for four different snow removal machines. The machine storage area has dedicated power for engine block heaters and future installation of a compressed air system. Heating in the machine storage area is intended for melting snow off the machines.
During general storage, the space will not be conditioned. Hose bibs are provided for routine cleaning of machines. The 4’-high CMU wainscot around the base of the building is designed to protect the metal siding from deep snow build-up. A trench drain down the middle of the building collects snow melt and water spray from routine cleaning. The building includes basic support space for one office, break room and shower/rest room.
Significant challenges included working with a limited, $460,000 budget while ensuring the airport’s requirements regarding storage space for equipment, indoor temperatures, and desired amenities were met. We provided a design that fulfilled the programmatic requirements at a very low cost per square foot.
