Construction has begun on a new facility at Brisbane Airport which will become a hub for GE Aviation, a provider of jet engines, components and systems for commercial and military aircrafts.
A recent on-site sod turning event marked the start of the construction stage, which calls for a new 3,312sqm warehouse, located within the Da Vinci precinct.
The project is generating more than 400 construction jobs and is expected to be completed by mid-2022.
More than 20 GE Aviation and Tomkins delegates visited the site for the sod turning event including CFO of GE Aviation, Mark Gavioli, who said the team is thrilled at the prospect of settling into a custom and state-of-the-art facility.
“We are so glad to enter this new chapter with a significant vote of confidence in the future of our relationship with Brisbane Airport.
“We have been at the airport since 2005, and some of us standing here on our future warehouse site were at the original sod turning, so we are proud to bring in new employees who may still be here in 16 years,” Mr Gavioli said.
Brisbane Airport Corporation Head of Property Development, George Delibaltas, was there to welcome the long-term tenants to their new site.
“GE Aviation’s partnership with Brisbane Airport means a great deal to us as it is a long-lasting relationship that continues to go from strength to strength, and we really look forward to starting this next chapter together,” Mr Delibaltas said.
“We have a number of exciting projects underway across the airport, with our property assets under management portfolio exceeding $1.5 billion.
“GE Aviation is a part of this exciting change, as are other big names including DHL, Qantas, Eagers Automotive, and many more.”
