In a multimillion-dollar vote of confidence in the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan airport and the Denver metro area it serves, Sheltair has broken ground on a new large-cabin class size hangar and office facility at its Colorado FBO. The $10 million project comes a year after Sheltair opened the doors to its FBO terminal.
This new second hangar will mirror the existing sister hangar with 30,240 sq ft of hangar space and a 210 ft wide and 28.6 ft high hangar door, allowing Sheltair BJC to welcome the latest generation of aircraft such as the G650 and Global Express. At the same time, this new facility will provide 6,000 sq ft of office space for tenants along with 94 additional car parking spaces, 16 of which will be covered.
“As a third-generation family business committed to providing outstanding service, we are focused on our guests' experience,” states Sheltair president Lisa Holland. “That extraordinary commitment resonates with every Sheltair employee. This celebration is about our dedication to the Sheltair client.”
The newest hangar now being built will ensure that the FBO will continue to meet the robust base tenant population and busy transient traffic that reflect the continued economic strength of the surrounding region.
“I am happy to say that the partnership between Rocky Mountain Metropolitan airport and Sheltair has been honest, honourable and an incredible win-win,” says Jefferson County commissioner Tracy Kraft-Tharp. “This project shows what Sheltair has to offer the airport, the community and, more importantly, the customers of BJC.”
While Sheltair's celebration included a formal groundbreaking for the hangar expansion, Lisa Holland led a ceremonial champagne toast honouring the FBO facility's anniversary.
She notes: “While our building's architecture and accommodations were among the criteria cited in their decision to present this coveted award, the baseline is the dedication of our staff, from the professionals on the ramp to the team behind the counter. Each Sheltair employee shares the core value of service and safety that sets a national standard. This very special recognition from Wilson Leach and the AIN team is sincerely appreciated as we proceed with our expansion at KBJC.”
