Project Overview

This new, 187,000-square-foot high-bay facility located directly adjacent to the Burlington International Airport runways includes aircraft assembly space, office and employee spaces, and support areas. This first phase of BETA’s campus expansion project will support the manufacturing of the aerospace company’s first all-electric aircraft, ALIA.

The building’s steel trusses, which are a proprietary product by Lainco Inc., are 10 feet tall and provide a clear span of 170 feet at the center of the facility.

In keeping with BETA’s mission of sustainability, net-zero environmental strategies are incorporated into the design and construction. This includes daylighting and natural ventilation to geothermal heating and cooling, on-site solar energy systems, grey water reclamation, and stormwater treatment and management. The building will emphasize energy efficiency, minimize environmental impact and include both community and green outdoor spaces to allow the public to be part of the experience.

The project has an aggressive schedule with phased turnover to the owner.
