Working with general contractor, Powell Construction, and architects, Snodgrass Freeman Associates and Castino Architecture, CHG built the 32,000-square-foot building that houses Ace Aviation. The building was constructed on the site of Ace’s previous facility and is located at the busy Renton Airfield and was adjacent to an active taxiway. The facility includes a 12,000-square-foot hangar floor and 18,000 square feet of support areas. Another 2,000 square feet are subleased.
The design, with its rows of grilled windows, is intended to recall early 20th-century manufacturing buildings, such as Boeing's historic Red Barn, built in 1909. The three-story office entryway houses a Boeing 737 nose section, which protrudes from the wall. Visitors can enter the cockpit and take the controls.
Aircraft with wing spans of up to 95 feet will fit through the building’s 100-foot by 28-foot rolling service doors allowing Ace to accommodate general aviation clients and service larger turboprop clients.
