As part of a design-build team, BRPH was selected by Rolls-Royce to provide architecture and engineering design for a major renovation and consolidation of 2 million square feet of existing manufacturing, assembly, testing, and office space originally built in the 1950s in Indianapolis.
The five-year, half-billion
dollar modernization program will result in a consolidated 500,000 square foot,
state-of-the art manufacturing center. The project represents Rolls-Royce’s largest factory consolidation and reorganization effort, and is currently running ahead of schedule.
BRPH is involved with the re-purposing and reorganization of existing tooling and equipment infrastructure to suit future factory needs. Work is being designed and built inside the existing factory spaces.
The Indianapolis facility designs, assembles and tests engines including the AE2100 powerplant for the C-130J, the AE1107C of the V-22 Osprey, the AE3007H of the unmanned Global Hawk and its MQ4C Triton maritime variant, and the LiftSystem of the F-35B Lightning II, as well as engines for commercial helicopters.RSS
