Nadler Modular’s Hill AFB Project Preps for Takeoff


Located about 30 miles from Salt Lake City, Hill Air Force Base in northern Utah is one of the largest military bases on U.S. soil. It houses the 75th Air Base Wing, 388th Fighter Wing, and 419th Fighter Wing, along with thousands of logistics and support personnel.

As part of its continuing engagement in projection of Air Force power around the globe, it continues to cope with mission growth and the need to house and support its expanding operations in the most efficient, speedy, and cost-effective manner possible. As a consequence, its command has decided to deploy and utilize modular units to achieve their goals, and has turned to Nadler for the execution of their plans.

Nadler Modular Construction has been engaged to provide a 74,000 square feet new workspace, comprised of 108 premanufactured 11’ x 60’ trailer modules assembled create a unified state-of-the-art, turnkey office complex capable of accommodating up to 512 base personnel.

The photos below were taken in September, 2020, and show the site prep and individual trailer modules being delivered for staging and assembly.
