Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, along with a long list of state and city elected officials, and top executives from Northrop Grumman, Douglas Allred Company and Willmeng Construction gathered and shared their remarks at the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the 633,000 square-foot campus for Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems’ Launch Vehicle Division Headquarters.

This is the latest example of how custom build-to-suit building construction like the Northrop Grumman facility are able to accelerate the building process, spur on more corporate relocations, increase jobs and drive economic development in areas throughout the Valley. Willmeng Construction began work in 2017, executing tenant improvements on multiple buildings in Chandler for Northrop Grumman (formerly Orbital ATK). In 2018, Northrop Grumman acquired Orbital ATK, increasing their need for expansion in the Valley, and in 17 months one of the largest office and manufacturing facilities in the Valley was completed.  

“The facility is a reflection of the vision that the team at the Douglas Allred Company has to strategically create appealing and unique campus environments,” said James Murphy, president and CEO of Willmeng Construction. “We were proud to take on the challenge of building this facility at a speed that is truly unparalleled in the market, achieving the unachievable to ensure there is were no disruption to the important work accomplished at Northrop Grumman. We were truly working to support a launch schedule.” [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][gem_vimeo video_id=”373501748″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Douglas Allred Company and Willmeng hosted the ribbon-cutting ceremony, complete with skydivers, video highlights, exclusive media opportunities, and remarks from Arizona Gov.

To date, Willmeng has completed a number of projects at Park Place on behalf of developer Douglas Allred Company, but the 633,000-square-foot campus for Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems is the largest yet.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
