Helping to deliver a fabrication plant that meets net zero energy goals

BETA Technologies is creating electric transportation that’s safe, reliable, and sustainable. BETA’s electric aircraft in production is called the Alia—the world’s most technologically advanced electric vertical aircraft (EVA) and the first of its kind to operate with zero operational emissions. When BETA needed to expand production by building a facility at Burlington International Airport (BTV), they turned to us to collaborate with their design architect, Vermont Studios, to deliver a all-electric, zero fossil fuels fabrication plant that meets zero net energy for core-and-shell loads.

Sited adjacent to BTV, the new manufacturing and office facility implements the latest sustainability and environmental strategies. The building emphasizes energy efficiency, minimizes environmental impact, and includes both community and green outdoor spaces to allow the public to be part of the experience. The design features all-electric systems, high-performance envelope, a 400-foot (122-metre) deep, 260-well geothermal system tied to energy recovery ventilation, and other sustainable practices. The manufacturing spaces have a central skylight that floods the space with natural light and connects BETA’s workers with views of the changing skies above.

The design reflects the surrounding community and natural environment. Now complete, this facility—and the products it produces—has a positive impact on both the community and as well as the environment.
