Construction continues at Piedmont Triad.
Boom Supersonic has marked a significant construction milestone by “topping out” its Overture Superfactory when the final structural beam was raised into place, completing the building's frame. Boom recently finished the decking on top of the structure, began installing the metal side panels which make up the walls, and started pouring the concrete flooring slabs. With a significant portion of the exterior building constructed, the Overture Superfactory continues to take shape and remains on track for completion in 2024.
The factory is a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located on a 62-acre campus at the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina. Overture is Boom's sustainable supersonic airliner, capable of flying twice as fast as today's commercial aircraft on up to 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
“We continue to be pleased with the progress on the Overture Superfactory, our final assembly line for Overture,” says Chris Taylor, vice president of manufacturing at Boom Supersonic. “This milestone is a testament to the hard work of the numerous trade teams who are building the Superfactory, and marks an important step forward in building the sustainable supersonic future in the Piedmont Triad.”
In 2022, Boom Supersonic announced the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina as the home to the Overture Superfactory. Construction began on the site in January 2023, and since then, Boom has been building the campus in sections, focusing first on the final assembly line where Boom will have the capacity to produce up to 33 Overture aircraft per year, which can grow to 66 per year with the addition of a second line. The Overture Superfactory is roughly 150,000 square feet with an additional 24,000 square feet of office space.
Looking ahead, Boom will continue construction of the Overture Superfactory with BE&K Building Group and their design partner, BRPH. The building will be LEED certified in keeping with Boom's commitment to environmental sustainability.
