In a joint venture with another firm, VRX is the prime Program Manager for United Airlines on a $187M program to construct a new 214,000-SF hangar.
The United Technical Operations Center (UTOC) program also includes a new taxi lane and apron pavement with 4 hardstand positions; new bulk storages; shops; and remodels critical to maintenance operations at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston (IAH).
Once completed, the facility will accommodate widebody aircraft (including Boeing 767s, 777s, 787s, and Airbus A350s) and provide an improved work environment with better ergonomics, safety, and efficiency for United’s maintenance technicians and support personnel.
The UTOC-Houston has three primary phases:
- Phase 1 includes Hangar X (185,850 square feet), to be used by Line Maintenance and supporting organizations.
- Phase 2 involves the renovation of the storage building serving both the Line Maintenance and Base Maintenance operations at IAH.
- Phase 3 involves the renovation of Hangar E and incorporating it into the adjacent (Hangars A and G) Base Maintenance operation, and its associated shops.
