Chris-Tel Construction has broken ground on the new world headquarters for Newcastle Aviation on Domestic Avenue in Fort Myers.
Newcastle is a global aviation company supporting commercial and regional airlines, and general aviation industries. It provides asset management, sales, acquisitions, leases and appraisals on aviation components and parts on a global scale.
The company is relocating from Burnsville, Minnesota, to Southwest Florida because of county and state tax incentives, as well as growth in Florida’s aviation industry.
Studio A.D. Architects designed the 40,000sf facility, which will house the executive and general office staff, and include a storage area with rack system, conference rooms and a break room. It also contains 10,000sf of leasable space, with room for expansion.
Construction began in June and is slated for a January completion. For more information, please visit www. christelconstruction.com.
