GE Aviation broke ground in June of 2021 on an advanced manufacturing center in Beavercreek, Ohio. Sited on 53 acres in the Miami Valley Research Park, the 280,000-sf structure will enable the development and production of gas turbine engine components and mechanical systems for a variety of industries, including aviation, space, defense, oil, and gas. Integrating high-performance glazing and insulated concrete wall panels, the steel-framed facility will leverage lean manufacturing technologies to optimize efficiency and reduce waste. The center is part of a strategic plan to consolidate activities currently housed in seven separate locations. Pure Development is the construction manager for the project, which is slated for completion in early 2022.
