Motor Wing, Runways and North Gate

Israel

Israel’s primary spaceport and one of its most technologically advanced air force bases requires the most up-to-date facilities to operate on the highest level.

Conti provided construction services to renovate two air force bases. The team built a one-story central motor wing building, rehabilitated the North Gate entrance, constructed helicopter aprons and runways at one site and performed taxiway renovations at the second.

The motor wing building included reinforced concrete foundation, specialized welded steel framing, flooring, ceilings, electrical and plumbing. When finished, the building stood at 12,379 SF and included 7’ exterior reinforced concrete walls.

Conti also installed entrance barriers, two security booths, one security check building and a parking area at the North Gate, and completed renovations that included scraping, paving and painting of one runway and two helicopter aprons.

Conti faced considerable challenges when working on two active MOD bases, including security clearances and logistic issues. Still, the team completed the project on schedule with no interruption to base operations.

Conti benefited the local community by actively pursuing work with local Israeli subcontractors, resulting in nearly 90% of the work performed by the local work force.
