Gulfstream's existing 209,000-square-foot Savannah Service Center at the company's main site will be converted into a manufacturing facility, and a new 222,000-square-foot manufacturing building will be constructed directly adjacent to the current service center. Additionally, Gulfstream will construct another new 42,600-square-foot paint hangar at the main site.
Gulfstream's main building, which houses executive offices and numerous support organizations, including its Marketing and Sales departments, will be renovated to include a new Sales and Design Center. Customers visiting the Sales and Design Center will have access to the latest technological tools to assist in selecting their aircraft's floorplan and furnishings. The plan also includes a new 140,000-square-foot engineering building at the northeast end of the main site.
As part of the expansion, Gulfstream will upgrade site infrastructure, including improvements to the railway delivery and water drainage systems. Gulfstream, the Georgia Department of Transportation, Chatham County and the City of Savannah will work together to improve traffic access routes to Gulfstream's facilities.
In choosing contractors and subcontractors for the expansion, Gulfstream will continue its existing policy of providing opportunities to small, women-owned, disadvantaged, veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran businesses, and Historically Underutilized Business zones.
