Falcon Hill is the most strategically located aerospace research park in the nation, located in Hill Air Force Base, with space available both inside and outside the fence.
This 550 acre private development, under an Air Force Enhanced Use Lease, will feature over 2 million square feet of commercial space in its first phase alone, with additional phases offering unmatched expansion capability, staging benefits and infrastructure.
Hill AFB is situated at the “Crossroads of the West” between Ogden and Salt Lake City. It is bordered by the colorful Wasatch Mountains on the east and overlooks the Great Salt Lake to the west, providing the most scenic destination in the country
SCI is working with Stake & Parsons on the initial roadway and infrastructure. This consists of the realignment and reconstruction of the West Gate of Hill Air Force Base roadway in conjunction with a new building development for private tenant and military relocation’s from existing buildings. SCI’s portion of this project is approximately $1.7 million of the total $9 million project. We are installing a new duct bank conduit system to house new power feeds to the new buildings and new security facility as well as fiber optic cable for voice and data. We are also installing two new traffic signal systems, a highway lighting system and pedestrian crossing signal system’s.
To successfully complete the project, SCI will be using several different methods of construction including open excavation and trenching with track hoes and backhoes, horizontal directional drilling, and vacuum excavation.
Project Update – April 29, 2011
Not exactly business as usual on the project site today. We’ve made a lot of progress on the placement of the power and communication conduit structure over the last several weeks. Today we had a bit of a different task to take on! The normal stuff included setting three 13`x 33′ power vaults. The tricky part was the fact we had several missiles sitting in our way! Definitely not your typical day at the office.
The missiles were disassembled and relocated to another location on base for future placement. The larger size minuteman is an MX Peacekeeper and the smaller one is a Minuteman III.
Just another great example of how versatile and talented our team is and how we can tackle just about any job!
