Did You Know that Boeing Everett Factory is the Largest Building in the World by Volume?

The historical roots of the Everett Factory go back to the 1960s, when the Boeing 747 shook the world by making its first step into aviation. Exactly, Everett manufacturing facility is the place where Boeing super jumbos are born! It was built with a purpose to produce the 747 aircraft that became one of the greatest technological achievements of the XX century.

Nevertheless, the course of aviation history was changed not only by the 747, the manufacturing facility made history itself, too. Wondering why? The building has been included into the Guinness World Records list as the largest building in the world by volume at 13.3 million cubic meters. Just imagine, the Boeing Everett campus is big enough to encompass Disneyland and still have some free area left over for parking!

According to Boeing, this manufacturing facility gathers over 30,000 employees. Apart from the production areas dedicated for employees supporting aircraft fabrication and production, product development, aviation safety and security as well as aircraft certifications, the facility also includes the paint hangars, flight line and delivery centre. In addition, the campus has its own fire department, security team and guess what else! Day care centre and fitness centre! Sounds absolutely amazing.

Worth to note that currently the Everett factory is the production hub not only of the 747 jets. The 787 Dreamliner, the 747-8 as well as 777X are also born here.

Over 150,000 people from all over the world visit the Everett site every year to discover how millions of parts and miles of wiring are combined to give a shape and bring to life Boeing wide-body jets.
