Boeing Charleston places the final steel beam on its 787 Dreamliner interiors fabrication facility about 10 miles from its interior plant. It’s yet another milestone for Boeing Charleston as the company celebrates the last beam being placed on a building that will serve to manufacture 787 interior parts. Parts include: stowbins, closets, partitions, class dividers, floor-mounted stowbins for flight attendants, overhead flight crew rests, video control stations and attendant modules.
Interiors Responsibility Center Director Lane Ballard says Fabrication is thrilled because this progress puts Boeing one step closer to producing 787 interiors for South Carolina’s final assembly and delivery team. Construction on this 300,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility in North Charleston’s Commerce Park began in September 2010 and is scheduled to open at the end of this year.
