With no available hangar space, the Morris Municipal Airport was forced to turn away prospective tenants and could not provide transient storage for aircraft. Flanked on two sides by runways and on the third side by a state highway, the airport had few options for expansion. To overcome these obstacles, the Morris Municipal Airport hired TKDA for the design of a new hangar.
TKDA designed a new 110-foot by 80-foot hangar, taxi lane extension, and apron construction. The hangar included in-floor heat, energy-efficient lighting, and an 80-foot by 18-foot bi-fold door. The project cost was approximately $880,000 including engineering, testing, and construction, with over 90% of the overall project cost covered by state and federal funding.
