LAFAYETTE - Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp. plans to move about 150 employees in Boulder to a 42,000-square-foot office at the Lafayette Corporate Campus later this month.

Ball Aerospace, a subsidiary of Broomfield-based Ball Corp. (NYSE: BLL), plans to relocate the information-technology services group to the office space at 2675 Crescent Drive in Lafayette, said Roz Brown, a Ball Aerospace spokeswoman. The company's data center and additional offices also will move to Lafayette in mid-April, Brown said.

Ball Aerospace needs the new space to accommodate business growth, Brown said. A remodel to get the space ready for the new tenants is listed at $1.1 million, according to documents filed with the city of Lafayette.

Falls Church, Virginia,-based Northrop Grumman Corp. was the previous tenant in the building. The government contractor laid off 35 employees and closed the Lafayette office in August.

Etkin Johnson Group in Denver owns the building. GH Phipps Construction Co. is the general contractor.
