These might be points you do not have to deal with but...
Points to consider:
1.) Door of hangars should face south or west or combination... for
2.) Concrete is the ticket for long-term investment and usage (have you seen
what pilots do to asphalt when they dump their fuel?)... prefer slip-form
construction; make sure they hand-vibrate the ends (where slip-form machine
can not vibrate)
3.) Make sure base/grade (any dirt/rock below stone/concrete/asphalt) meets
all density/compaction test...
4.) Remove any remote possibility of water transversing base/grade... with
drains on all four edges... include sub-surface drains...
5.) Install proper drainage (under apron) for gutters on hangars...
Again... these are points I have picked up on in my climate area... and wish
I would have done differently...
Best of luck,

Subject: CAA: Mutual Help List, Help with Building a Ramp for Hangars
I'm about to start into design of a new ramp to erect hangars here in
Farmington, New Mexico. This new asphalt ramp will cover about 4 acres,
and will have a slope of about 1-2% from side-to-side.
What I'd like to ask is for any helpful information that anyone else may
have run across. Anything you wish you may have done differently when
laying out the ramp, or any problems the ramp construction caused during
the later hangar erection.
Thanks for your help -
