BRPH is excited to announce their partnership with Hensel Phelps in the design-build of OneWeb Satellites’ new Spacecraft Integration Facility.
The firm bid for the project in early 2016 and was notified by Space Florida in mid-March that they would receive the contract for the project. Since then, the team has been working closely with Space Florida and OneWeb Satellites on the final design of the facility, ensuring the structure and foundation of the building will meet the unique needs of the satellite company, which plans to produce 900 satellites, at 15 satellites per week.
In attendance at the groundbreaking ceremony were Florida Governor Rick Scott, OneWeb Satellites CEO Brian Holz, Airbus Defense and Space Inc., President Mike Cosentino, Hensel Phelps Project Executive, John Saul, and BRPH President and CEO and Chairman of the Board, Brian Curtin.
“I first want to congratulate OneWeb, OneWeb Satellites and Airbus on the start of their new manufacturing facility here on the Space Coast,” said Curtin. “This is a particularly exciting day for everyone involved on the design-build team, as we’ve been hard at work designing this facility and anticipating the start of construction for several months. We’re honored to play a part in OneWeb Satellites’ bright future, and additionally look forward to the economic impact this facility will bring to the region.”
"Hensel Phelps is excited to team with Space Florida and Airbus OneWeb Satellites in constructing this unique cutting edge satellite manufacturing facility," said Hensel Phelps Project Executive, John Saul. "This is an exciting time for OneWeb and Hensel Phelps is thrilled to support their vision of bringing The Web to the whole world."
