NetJets is a fractional jet ownership for individuals and businesses. They have a major presence at the Port Columbus (Ohio) International Airport (CMH) and sought to consolidate remote operations at a new location. The Columbus Regional Airport Authority wanted to retain NetJets as a tenant, rather than lose them to another major city. This design team had done a two-story office addition to the existing NetJets CMH hangar, and so the Airport Authority retained them to create unique architecture for NetJets’ consolidated needs near the existing facility.
The program required additional hangar and apron space, administrative office and support space, and flight safety training space available to NetJets and other corporate and charter pilots. The office space included a large food service and fitness component. The increase in proposed staff also required tripling the parking count requirement.
