Description

SFC Engineering Partnership, Inc., (SFC) was contracted for structural engineering service for the antenna support facility at the New Boston Air Force Station. SFC’s services involved the development and design of a single story reinforced concrete structure and foundation to support a satellite-tracking antenna and dome.

The concrete building was approximately 21 feet x 28 feet x 9 feet high wall with two interior walls and a single entry door and stair access opening in the roof. SFC designed the structure with radial concrete walls, raised above the roof, to support the 28-foot diameter radome and a raised concrete pedestal to support a satellite antenna. The roof design and materials accommodated personnel for inspection and maintenance activities. This facility now provides equipment support and ample storage space.
