This project consist of two parts Strategic Airlift Apron and Helicopter Apron. Strategic Airlift Apron was constructed on an 80,500 sq.m (866,495 sq.ft), medium-load (C-5 and equivalent) site, with connecting taxiways and shoulders. Work also include pavement markings, grounding points, utilities (power and electrical connections), and other necessary site improvements. Helicopter Apron was constructed on a 120,000 sq.m (1,291,670 sq.ft), medium load site, with connecting taxiways and shoulders for rotary-winged aircraft. Work include pavement markings, grounding points, aircraft shelters, utilities (including, but not limited to, power and electrical connections), and other necessary site improvements.

Acrefine Engineering has provided various types of seismic isolators and snubbers to restrain mechanical and electrical equipment that are critical for the day to day operation of the facility. The main challenge has been meeting high and demanding standards of US Army Corps of Engineers. Acrefine working closely with its local representative in the region has successfully accomplished the project.
