Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site at Moton Field in Tuskegee, AL, commemorates the contributions of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black airmen. Constructed in 1941 as a new training base, Moton Field was the site of primary flight training for the pioneering pilots and is now operated by the National Park Service.
The 43-acre Moton Field site had deteriorated for over 60 years—leaving only nine of its fifteen known structures remaining—when the National Park Service selected Hartrampf, Inc., now Wiley|Wilson, to lead a project to reconstruct and rehabilitate the site on an accelerated schedule. The project involved preserving and rehabilitating the buildings and the grounds, as well as constructing new visitor facilities.
As part of the renovation effort, Fisher Engineering professionals provided each building with a new automatic fire sprinkler protection throughout and a new peer-to-peer fire alarm system.
