After visiting the Hangar One site last May and studying the available drawings and photos of this building, the volunteers are confident that covering the Hangar One structure with PTFE is a viable solution. To reiterate, in addition to the architects, the volunteer team including a structural engineer, construction executive, and architectural fabric manufacturer and installation representatives that have all been involved in significant and related projects.

The team requested to access the Hangar to provide a more detailed design and cost analysis for the PTFE solution for Hangar One. Any information acquired would be provided to the Navy and RAB Committee.
