The City of Klamath Falls (Owner) solicits proposals from construction firms interested in providing Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) services for the F-15 Static Display & Plaza.
The City of Klamath Falls received a retired F-15 aircraft from the Oregon Air National Guard to be used as a static display focal point in the middle of a new plaza. The plaza is planned to consist of concrete with steps, ramp, landscape planters, up-lighting, etc. Other minor site improvements are also planned (sidewalks, electrical controls, and lighting).
The F-15 aircraft will be provided a concrete foundation below the plaza with a structural streel frame to hold it in the air. A new stucco façade will be constructed around the frame to hide it and provide a location to install a new plaque.
The F-15 aircraft is currently stored at Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls and will require preparation, transportation of less than 10 miles, fabrication (minor elements to hold wings/flaps in place permanently), lifting into place (crane services), and more. The Oregon Air National Guard is assisting with aircraft preparation and access to / coordination with Kingsley Field will be very critical to the success of this project.
