Since the merger of Page AvJet and Butler Aviation in 1992, Signature Flight Support has grown to become the world’s largest network of Fixed Base Operators (FBOs), with over 100 locations. Signature’s worldwide FBOs deliver essential support services for business and private aviation, including refueling, hangarage, and a variety of other amenities essential to the safe and efficient operation of an aircraft.
Signature Flight Support in Boston had a problem. They needed to create a high-end, custom-finished terminal building at one of the nation’s busiest airports, Boston Logan International Airport, but because they work at the airport on a temporary lease they did not want a site-built structure. They knew they needed a clear span building that would create a visually interesting terminal. The finish and interior build-out needed to be customized and the entire project needed to be done quickly. Through the recommendation of their construction manager, Signature Flight sought the services of Williams Scotsman.
Williams Scotsman Redi-Plex product line offered the ideal solution for Signature Flight’s pre-fab building needs. Redi-Plex are modular units with an open, clear-span space that can be configured as needed and finished out on-site by a general contractor. Working closely with Williams Scotsman, Signature Flight designed their terminal from available Redi-Plex inventory. Six units were joined together and shared a custom glass vestibule. To give their crew modular offices during the construction process, we also installed a smaller modular building as interim space. Our Redi-Plex units were built and ready for quick delivery to the site. Custom finishing touches include high-end tile work throughout the complex, a modular public restroom, galley, lounges, conference room and staff offices.
Once the project was ready to go, the units were delivered and installed in less than two weeks. With its distinctive custom touches, Signature Flight’s terminal is a solid, visually interesting building that looks as though it was traditionally built right on site. Best of all, it’s fully relocatable. The terminal is clean, comfortable and well-furnished and it thoroughly upholds Signature’s service promise of friendly, consistent and exceptional service to the passengers and crews it serves.
