JoaQuin has had extensive expertise in the design, production, integration and installation of various types of equipment shelters for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) since 1978. We have been involved in the Approach Lighting System with Sequenced Flashing Lights (ALSF, ALSF-2), Instrument Landing Systems (ILS), and Medium Intensity Approach Lighting System with Runway Alignment Indicator Lights (MALSR). Joaquin’s level of participation has included: The Design and Production of the Shelter, The Integration of the New Bedford Equipment and The Production and Integration of the Engine Generator.

JoaQuin is continuously involved in designing enclosures for future requirements. Technological changes in electronic equipment will surely change the profile and function of today’s FAA building. JoaQuin’s expertise as a custom design manufacturer will position us to design and fabricate the shelters of the future.
