Boeing has a high design ambition for its new Everett Delivery Center which will be the showpiece for its new 787 program. The goal of this remodel project is to transform an existing facility in to a showroom where the world's most important airline customers meet with Boeing representatives to conduct transactions for the sale and transfer of aircraft.
The existing delivery center is a single-story building built in the 1960s with furnishings from the same era. The new Everett Delivery Center (EDC) will immerse Boeing's international clientele in a world-class customer experience when acquiring new large-body aircraft. The 180,000 SF, three-story facility will provide office and conferencing environments for both Boeing and their clients during a purchase and acquisition phase that can span months.
"Fantastic work by the interview team to engage Boeing and win this job," said DLR Group Senior Principal Scott Kruse. "This will be a great job for our design team."
Because customers fly their aircraft away from the EDC, the facility also includes additional functions similar to airports, including TSA operations and passenger boarding bridges, making this one of the most unique Class A office buildings in the world and a critical climactic touch-point in the series of customer experiences of Boeing's brand.
