VTMAE, Inc./ST Engineering Aerospace MRO Hangar


  • Scope: 173,000 square feet, 19-acre site
  • Owner: City of Pensacola
  • HPM Services: Preconstruction Services, Owner’s Representation
  • Value: $46 million


The expansion of aerospace company VT MAE to Pensacola brought hundreds of jobs to the city of Pensacola and a towering, 80-foot-tall hangar to the skyline of Pensacola International Airport. HPM provided owner representation before, throughout, and following the construction of the double-bay MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) hangar — which is large enough to accommodate two wide-body aircraft — as well as site work, parking, apron, and taxiways. HPM’s team reviewed cost estimates, construction safety plans, and phasing plans; monitored all construction activities on the ground, including full-time quality control; and reviewed, negotiated, and commented on changes to assist the owner and make the project a success.

HPM is in the business of leading. For some clients, this may mean managing an already-established, multi-million dollar capital building program. For others, it could mean overseeing a single project from site selection through owner occupancy. No matter the scope of our involvement or at what point you find yourself in the building process, HPM exists to lead our clients to success and provide value in everything we do.

Services include:
– aerospace & airport program management
– airport & aerospace project management
– engineering procurement project management
– integrated project delivery
– master planning
– site selection
