Greenfield Production Expansion

01 Challenge

BHDP was enlisted by Airstream to develop a site and facility master plan allowing this iconic American brand to increase production and meet the global demand for their distinctively designed and easily recognizable travel trailers, which have been hand-crafted and assembled exclusively at their Jackson Center, OH, production and manufacturing facility for over fifty years.

02 Solution

Alongside Airstream’s leadership team, BHDP explored concepts and phasing strategies to expand their existing production facility as well as concepts for a new Greenfield campus. Ultimately, Airstream decided to design and construct a new travel trailer production facility on a 50-acre Greenfield site only minutes away from their current home.
