Rolls-Royce Advanced Airfoil Machining Facility, Prince George, Va.

The new $24-million Rolls-Royce facility adjoins the company's recently completed Rotatives Facility. Known as Rolls-Royce Crosspointe, the 82,625-sq-ft conjoined complex supports approximately 67,110 sq ft of production hall and support space.

The design-build team completed this fast-track project in less than 12 months. The tight schedule challenged the team to reach a project stakeholder agreement on final design. The Rolls-Royce mechanical engineering group, located in the United Kingdom, was responsible for defining equipment specifics and parameters. The facility was designed and built to LEED Silver standards and incorporates a daylight harvesting system installed in the production hall to maintain requisite light levels.
