Five Rivers Aviation FBO

Livermore, California
132,725 s.f.
A major new FBO (Fixed Base Operator) development on the north side of the Livermore Airport to be completed in four phases.
Phase one: 6,000 s.f. admin/terminal with classrooms, conference rooms, lobby, pilots lounge, plan room, events kitchen, laundry, showers, public and private restrooms and office areas. 25,000 s.f. of hangar space with office areas and restrooms, fuel farm, tie down areas, ramps, parking, trash enclosure, public restrooms, site utilities, infrastructure.

Phase two: 25,000 s.f. of hangar space | Phase three: 25,000 s.f. of hangar space | Phase four: 51,000 s.f. of hangar space, public restrooms.

The design made use of a very tight volume envelope imposed by runway setbacks, FAA guidelines and flood plain development standards. Utilizing a combination of prefabricated steel buildings and traditional steel stud construction, barrel roof elements at the entries, the terminal building and the trash enclosure brought the feel of traditional aviation architecture to the project while blending with the new city terminal next door.
