Entry Control Facility 26A


Entry Control Facility 26A

The Commercial Entry Control Facility gate provides an enclosed commercial vehicle inspection area, an overhead canopy to yield a covered vehicle checkpoint for security staff, advanced inspection capabilities, and an intersection and traffic signal to improve gate management and relieve traffic congestion. The gate replaced the commercial vehicle inspection station at Gate 16A off Ohio 444 and the existing Gate 26A off Ohio 235.

“This gate improves functionality for Wright-Patt staff and guests while ensuring security remains at a premium—and all within green building standards,” Woolpert's Joe Bissaillon said. “By teaming with Messer and emersion on this design-build project, we know we are efficiently and cost-effectively providing the base with the optimum infrastructure and providing the community with healthy, sustainable design.”

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Gate 26A recently was awarded LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Architecture for the gate was provided by our team at emersion DESIGN, engineering and landscape architecture were performed by Woolpert, and Messer Construction was the contractor. The project was completed in 2019.
