Like a family preparing for a new baby, Piper Aircraft has hired a contractor to modify factory space for completion of the PiperJet, now in the detail design phase of its development.
Local subcontractors will be used for the multimillion-dollar project that will require 30 workers.
Summit Construction will provide architectural design and construction management services to upgrade an existing 75,000-square-foot building on Piper’s manufacturing campus. The project consists primarily of interior renovations to the building, including air conditioning the entire building.
Piper will assemble its new PiperJet, a single-engine entry in the very light jet market that seats up to seven in an expanded cabin. Flight tests flown by the PiperJet proof-of-concept vehicle verified the company’s expectations and helped the company develop further enhancements.
