Loenbro’s solutions allow us to complete large industrial projects, but also partner with local communities to complete smaller civic jobs.
Originally built in 1943, the Red Morgan Community Center was once a local hub for official meetings and promotions, weddings and birthdays, gaming and indoor play, all under one roof. It served as the main community center on Fairchild AFB but has been closed due to concerns that the building is not structurally safe. An engineering analysis reported that the 202’ x 195’ wood structure did not have a truss system that was adequate to support its own dead load or snow load.
This project is a Design-Build. Loenbro’s scope includes fabrication and install of structural steel reinforcement, glulam supporting members, and general carpentry.
