Honda Aircraft Production Headquarters
Honda sought a partner in developing its new world production headquarters for their advanced flight jet, HondaJet. This complex contains five buildings and serves as the home for all HondaJet research, product engineering, production aircraft sales and marketing, and service support. Honda wanted the facility to showcase an upscale image that reflected its customer focus, while also portraying an image of stability and high technology.
Barge Design Solutions provided planning, site permitting, architecture, engineering, and construction phase administration for the complex, which consisted of headquarters, research and development, and production facilities on a 70-acre site. The team’s strategy consisted of a fast-track completion and approval of key design elements that allowed the initial site and foundation construction to begin. The completion of these packages allowed construction to begin approximately three months earlier than originally anticipated.
The Honda Aircraft Headquarters Facility was certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.
By the Numbers
The Barge Factor
Barge Design Solutions was selected to provide full design services for the complex due to the company’s history of successful design for other Honda facilities. Creating fast-track design packages helped Honda move up its construction start date, and building packages were completed on time for the remaining construction schedule.
