Bedford, MA – In late August Jet Aviation, Massport and PROCON celebrated a raising of the beam (truss) on a new 40,000sf hangar under construction at the Boston/Bedford location. PROCON of Manchester, N.H. is the construction manager for the project, and SAA Architects and Design of Iselin, N.J. is the design architect.
The 40,000sf project underwent preliminary enhancements earlier this year when a 92,000sf ramp and apron upgrade were installed, along with two new roads accessing Hanscom Drive. In addition, two parking lots were added, one for MassPort and the second one for Jet Aviation clients, employees and visitors.
The new facility upgrade is designed to improve operational safety and efficiency with a capacity for the storage/maintenance needs of aircraft up to the Gulfstream G650 and a Global 6000. Plans also include a 16,000sf office and shop space, and a two-story 13,000sf state-of-the-art FBO (Fixed-Base Operator), to accommodate the customized needs of the Jet Aviation clientele.
Upon completion, the upgraded facility will feature a state-of-the-art architectural design with the emphasis on safety and efficiency.
