Juneau International Airport SREF

Juneau, Alaska

The Juneau International Airport (JNU) had outgrown their existing vehicle storage and maintenance facilities that date back to the 1950s. The existing Snow Removal Equipment Facility (SREF) could not properly accommodate the larger vehicle dimensions required by modern snow removal equipment resulting in difficult vehicle maneuvering, inadequate protection, and an inability to complete all maintenance procedures.

The new facility was designed to include three maintenance bays to repair JNU equipment and was attached to a heated Equipment Storage Facility with a drive-through wash bay, interior truck circulation, and direct access to the ramp for the snow removal equipment. The facility was designed with heating throughout that utilized ground-source heat pumps. Airport operations are located on a second floor with a view of the airport ramp and runways. A second heated facility is planned to store the sand and urea used for traction and deicing the ramp and runways.

Project Highlights
• Heated storage for snow removal equipment, which also has direct access to the airfield.
• Facility heated with ground-source heat pumps.
• Operations located on second floor with view of the airfield.
