Hanscom Airfield Rescue and Fire Fighting Facility
Saam Architecture led the design of the new Hanscom Airfield Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) Facility / United States Customs and Border Protection Facility at Hanscom Field. The building includes independent facilities for both the Massport Fire Department under FAA regulations and funding, as well as U.S. Customs and Border Protection. These two occupants independently occupy roughly 11,500 gross square feet with shared infrastructure.
The ARFF provides a high level of response for Massport fire fighters and supports the programmatic needs of the department in compliance with the FAA recommended program. The CBP facility aligns with current CBP design standards and incorporates additional safety and processing capabilities.
