Boeing Everett Delivery CenterBuilding 45-11
Design Achievement - Boeing's Everett Delivery Center is one of the most unique buildings in the world, mixing all the functions of: a showroom for large-body commercial airplanes; a Class A office housing both Boeing staff and their customer airlines for up to months at a time as they carry out final negotiations in purchasing planes; an events center for celebrational airplane delivery ceremonies; and an international airport. DLR Group's design fulfills Boeing's goal to create a world-class building that engages customers in the Boeing airplane brand by making the experience entirely about the planes outside. Sight lines, forms and shapes, tasteful finishes, and processional circulation enable ongoing experiential connection to the aircraft from all levels of the building. Programming, planning, and design not only meet the facility's wide range of functional needs, but further include solutions that address and respect the perspectives and needs of international customers coming from distinctly different cultures and backgrounds.
Scope Summary - The scope of work began with early collaboration with Boeing in a series of design workshops and charrettes to clarify the complex mix of spatial, functional, and cultural needs for this building. Design encompassed creating an all-new three-level, 180,000 SF building, with revised vehicular traffic and new parking, and new airplane delivery stalls with essential service connections. Spaces include open workplace and private offices; conference rooms; contract signing rooms; kitchen and dining spaces; customer procession areas, including reception, lounges and break areas; a delivery center featuring divisible space and advanced, events-level A/V systems and lighting; support and TSA security spaces. The project also entailed sustainable design strategies achieving LEED Gold certification. DLR Group provided architecture, interiors, and environmental graphics services.
