A Mechanized Material Handling System (MMHS) is attached to the flightline side of the building and consists of an automated delivery of pallets, using an Elevating Transfer Vehicle (ETV), mechanical pallet racks, and a series of roller conveyors.  The adjacent portion of the structure consists of administration, bulk storage, high-density shelving, parts pick-up and delivery, etc. for Base Supply operations.  An interior ramp with rolling door provides controlled access between user facilities.  Exterior ramps and docks are located on the flightline side of the facility.  Storefront entrance elements with canopies and enhanced landscaping are provide to distinguish between the two facilities.

The facility contains a sophisticated Industrial Ventilation CO2 Detection System, electrical power, communications and lighting, concrete slabs designed to support vehicle traffic and numerous overhead doors.
