New Facility Provides Office, Lab, Light Manufacturing And
Gulfstream recently purchased a building off Lummus Drive in
Savannah, GA to house the aircraft manufacturer's growing research
and development program. The acquisition of the 253,000-square-foot
facility is part of an expansion plan Gulfstream announced on Nov.
15, 2010, which includes building new facilities at the northwest
quadrant of the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport,
renovating several existing facilities on the main campus off
Gulfstream Road and expanding office and lab facilities at the
Gulfstream Research and Development Center.
"Gulfstream recognizes the strategic importance of research and
development," said Pres Henne, senior vice president, Programs,
Engineering and Test, Gulfstream. "This expansion will enable us to
explore new technologies that further enhance aircraft safety,
reliability, dependability and efficiency for our customers."
Gulfstream purchased the building from the Lummus Corp. in late
December. It is currently undergoing the first of two planned
renovations, which should be complete in February. The second
renovation is slated to start in April and is scheduled for
completion in 2012.
Located on 49.2 acres, the facility includes approximately
30,000 square feet of office space, approximately 223,000 square
feet of light manufacturing and warehouse space, and the potential
for additional office, lab and warehouse development.
Gulfstream's Research and Development campus consists of three
different phases and is home to approximately 1,450
employees. Research and Development Center I (RDC I) opened
in March 2006 and accommodates some 750 technical and engineering
employees. RDC II has two buildings: a 108,750-square-foot
office building and an 80,500-square-foot laboratory building. The
office building accommodates 550 employees from engineering and its
supporting groups. In addition to research- and development-related
equipment, the laboratory building houses some 150 engineering and
