Glenview naval air station

Holabird & Root Wins Naval Air Station Museum Project

Holabird & Root, in association with Aviation Consultant Bufano Management, was recently selected by the Glenview Park District Board of Commissioners, the Glenview Hanger One Foundation, and Bring It Home Glenview to complete a feasibility study for the new Naval Air Station Glenview Museum and Flight Academy, and STEM Learning Center. 

The Holabird & Root and Bufano Management design team will work closely with the Foundation and Park District to create a conceptual design that would preserve the history of the Naval Air Station; create space to display a restored World War II Navy aircraft; and tell the story of the Air Station’s role and influence in the Glenview community, aviation, and our nation’s history. 

The mission of the facility will be to honor those who served; preserve and exhibit the expanding collections; create an immersive learning experience for visitors; and educate future generations about the past, present, and future of aviation. 

The feasibility study and conceptual design is projected to be complete by the end of 2017.
