McMahon, a full-service, professional engineering and architectural firm, has completed its work to expand and remodel the Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation North Hangar at the Appleton International Airport. The project increased space by more than 13,000 square feet, allowing for more space for the aircraft company’s completions operations.
In the first phase of the project, McMahon relocated and remodeled the existing office space to a new addition to maximize workflow efficiency within the facility. McMahon’s design enhancements improved customer and employee experiences, including a new office area for completions customers and pilots, a wood finishing area, an upgraded shipping and receiving area for increased safety and efficiency and a completions hangar with an employee entrance, break room and lockers.
In the project’s second phase, McMahon provided construction administration services to oversee the successful completion of the project. This expansion is just one step in Gulfstream’s commitment to enhancing customer experience through continued investment in its facilities and people.
“This project not only supports the growth and success of Gulfstream, but also enhances the economic vitality of the Appleton International Airport and surrounding community,” said Derek Gruber, AIA architect at McMahon.
McMahon’s collaborative relationship with Gulfstream is ongoing; the companies are currently partnered on a $55 million aircraft paint facility, also at the Appleton International Airport. According to Gulfstream, this facility will have the capability to paint up to 48 planes per year and will allow Gulfstream to perform the entire aircraft completions process start-to-finish in Appleton.
