New Lockheed Martin Satellite Production Facility Breaks Ground

Lockheed Martin Space Systems Co. kicked off construction of its new $350-million, 266,000-square-foot satellite production facility with a groundbreaking ceremony held on Lockheed Martin’s Waterton Canyon campus on August 31, 2017. The primary purpose of the new facility, named the Gateway Center, is to increase production capacity, lower costs, and accommodate a growing workforce. In attendance at the ceremony were Rick Ambrose, head of Lockheed Martin Space Systems Co.; U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman; Jefferson County Commissioner Don Rosier, retired Major Gen. Jay Lindell, the state government’s official space industry advocate; RMH president Bill Green; RMH vice president Mike Watkins; and other members of the RMH design team.

The RMH Group is serving as the electrical engineer for this ambitious design-build project. RMH’s history on Lockheed Martin’s Waterton Canyon campus includes dozens and dozens of projects completed over the last 20 years. Project types have included satellite production and testing facilities, clean rooms, laboratories, administrative spaces, and site infrastructure. Construction of the Gateway Center is anticipated be completed by 2020.
