Turner Construction Company Awarded Contract for Boeing PAC-3 Missile Seeker Facility Expansion

June 14, 2016

Turner Construction Company’s Huntsville office has been awarded the contract for the Boeing Company’s Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) Missile Seeker program building expansion at the Boeing Huntsville Jetplex.

The groundbreaking for the project was held on June 9 and construction will begin later this month.

Located at 499 Boeing Blvd., the $5.9 million, 22,692-square-foot expansion will include a basement utility tunnel, a main floor factory space and a mechanical penthouse. Turner will also install new electrical service to serve this addition and other locations on the campus. The renovation will provide additional capability to build and sustain the current PAC-3 program for the U.S. Army.

“Turner has enjoyed working on projects with Boeing for years, so we're excited to continue our longstanding relationship and work hand-in-hand with their team to support the mission of the U.S. Army,” said Lee Holland, project executive with Turner’s Huntsville office. “We are grateful for the men and women that protect our country and are honored to be involved in this project.”

Holland added that he believes Turner’s relationship with Boeing and his team’s prior experience working on similar projects was one of several factors that led to Boeing awarding Turner this contract. In 2015, Turner completed an expansion to the Boeing Composites Testing Lab located on the same campus as the PAC-3 expansion.

The expansion to the PAC-3 facility will blend seamlessly into Boeing’s existing building — comprised of a concrete foundation, structural steel frame and pre-cast concrete exterior — and will enlarge the building’s physical footprint by 13,000 square feet. The existing structure will remain open and fully functional throughout construction.

“This project affords us the opportunity to increase our investment in the Huntsville community by working with local area contractors and creating new jobs, while also expanding the capabilities of our facilities to better serve the U.S. Army — an exciting and worthwhile investment,” said Jim Chilton, vice president and general manager of Boeing Strategic Missile & Defense Systems. “Our history with Turner goes back several decades. They consistently deliver superior results, so we are thrilled to be working with them again.”

Hargrove Engineers will serve as the architect and engineer on the project. The project is slated for completion in May of 2017.
