The company is bringing that pride to
its construction of the Gateway Center in
Littleton, Colo., for client Lockheed Martin
Corp. The facility, which will stand five stories and cover 266,000 square feet, will be
used for assembling and testing satellites.
Hensel Phelps is serving as the design/
builder on the $350 million project, which
broke ground in June. It is scheduled for
completion in December 2019.
When finished, the Gateway Center will
provide Lockheed Martin with a high-bay
cleanroom and test chambers that will allow the company to build and test satellites.
The clean rooms, Brooke adds, are being
built to ISO 8 standards.
Hand in Hand
Hensel Phelps and Lockheed Martin have
worked on projects together for more than
35 years. "We've got a long history with
them," Brooke says, noting that the companies have teamed up on work in Colorado,
California and at Cape Canaveral, Fla.
Not only did the contractor's relationship with Lockheed Martin make it an ideal fit for the Gateway Center, but it also has
the necessary expertise. "[We knew that]
this was a very unique facility," he says,
adding that the company helped design
the project from scratch. "It was initially a
concept on a napkin."
