Air center improvements continuing with major project

Work is underway to install a new roof on the large hangar used by Dean Baldwin Painting at the Roswell International Air Center. The new roof is replacing one that suffered from leaks and hampered the company’s production at times.

The estimated $4 million project – being funded by $1.5 million in city funds and a $2.5 million state loan – is part of the city’s commitment to invest in developing and maintaining aviation-related business at the air center. Dean Baldwin officials anticipate the company’s aircraft-painting production will be able to operate more efficiently and effectively once the roof improvements are made to the facility it leases from the city.

Phase 1 of the project – contracted to Roswell businesses Waide Construction and Allen Roofing – got underway around the end of July. The entire project could potentially be completed by late 2018, but that will depend on Dean Baldwin’s work schedule and when it can accommodate construction work on different parts of the hangar as the project progresses.
