Rolls-Royce Advanced Aerofoil Machining Facility

Project Summary

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, began construction in 2009 of its new aerospace facility a 1,200-acre megasite, Crosspointe Centre, in Prince George County (County), Virginia.  Timmons Group assisted the County with the master planning and site programming for development of the megasite.  We also worked hand-in-hand with the County to develop the infrastructure needed to support the Rolls-Royce Rotatives manufacturing facility.  We provided comprehensive land planning, site and geotechnical engineering, and environmental services to Rolls-Royce directly for the initial project. 

In August 2012, Rolls-Royce began the design-build of its new Advanced Aerofoil Machining Facility (AAMF) adjoining its Rotatives facility and sharing services.  The AAMF is the aerospace company’s second manufacturing facility to open in the Crosspointe development.  The 82,625 SF conjoined facility is located on the 60-acre development.  It consists of 67,111 SF of production area with additional office and office support space.  A mezzanine provides mechanical and electric equipment.  The project was designed to LEED Silver standards and was completed in 12 months and within budget. 

As part of the Balfour Beatty design-build team, Timmons Group provided an advanced site engineering package, design development, civil and geotechnical engineering, surveying, landscape architecture, and construction administration services.
