Project description: The Missouri National Guard is building an 84,000-square-foot addition to the existing Aviation Classification Repair Activity Depot. Officials say the facility includes new helicopter maintenance facilities for wiring, electronics and navigation, as well as office and training facilities for maintenance instruction, mobilization, operations and flight. The flight line construction adds to the existing Federal Aviation Administration concrete paving and security fencing. The AVCRAD facility is being built to accommodate an additional future readiness center, which will connect through the lobby.
Surgical tech workers are in high demand, officials say.
