We were excited to participate in this week’s groundbreaking ceremony for the National Advanced Air Mobility Center of Excellence project in Springfield, Ohio!
Marker Construction was selected as the Design/Builder for the $8.2 million, 30,000 SF, two-story facility located at the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport. The project will also provide 25,000 SF of hanger space that will be used by the Air Force as well as private industry.
Once completed, the Center will be used by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to support Agility Prime, a $35 million non-traditional research and development program designed to further Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) efforts, build confidence in technology, attract investors, and provide the Air Force revolutionary agility for numerous missions. Additionally, the Center will house university, business, and government researchers.
This new innovative Air Mobility Center will provide space at the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport to support manufacturers and operators of electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles (eVTOL), also known as a flying car. NAAMCE will also support the five companies that are already working on advanced air mobility at the Springfield airport.
The project is planned to be completed in the summer of 2023. Partners include the City of Springfield and MSA Design.
