The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) managed the construction work, commissioned and funded by NATO, on behalf of the Territorial Host Nation Italy. The infrastructure works cover a total area of 26,700 square metres and encompassed the design and construction of new buildings for command and control activities, the new AGS Headquarters, three modern hangars, a new apron, and related workshops, warehouses, and offices. The works also included the renovation of existing warehouses for logistics and maintenance of the AGS aircraft.
Advanced management of rainwater and wastewater, recycled materials, and 600 newly-installed photovoltaic panels are some of the measures adopted to ensure the long-term environmental and economical sustainability of the new infrastructure.
Representatives from the NATO Investment Committee, the Italian Ministry of Defence, the Italian Directorate General of Works and State Property, NSPA, and NAGSF, gathered at the AGS Main Operating Base in Sigonella to celebrate the milestone. After a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the attendees had the opportunity to visit the new facilities including one of the NATO AGS aircraft in the main hangar
