Work gains on BAE Systems’ new Manchester facility
New operation seen as having ‘immense impact on the community’
The work, being overseen by construction management firm Fulcrum Associates of Amherst, involves renovation of two four-story buildings at 3000 Goffs Falls Road, which will house the defense contractor’s electronic warfare programs.
Renovations have been underway since April of last year.
The facility under renovation was built approximately 40 years ago and involves work at both buildings and construction of a new parking lot.
BAE announced last year that it would open the new facility in Manchester, its first in the Queen City. The company, the state’s largest manufacturing employer, already has operations in Nashua and Hudson. At the time of the announcement, the company said the Manchester facility would have space for 800 employees.
“Expanding BAE Systems’ New Hampshire presence into Manchester will have an immense impact on the community,” said Jeffrey Luter, Fulcrum’s president.
“Our new location in Manchester will strengthen our workforce and improve our ability to deliver high-quality, trusted products to meet our commitments to our customers,” said Ray Brousseau, vice president and deputy general manager of BAE Systems Electronic Systems sector.
Fulcrum was selected by BAE Systems through a request for proposal process in February 2019 year and began pre-construction planning last spring
Fulcrum has previously completed several projects for BAE Systems and was awarded the BAE Systems Partner2Win
