Construction will begin later this month to the headquarters for Ford Motor Company campus in Dearborn, Michigan. Changes will include splitting the 30,000 employees who work in 70 buildings, who work at the current campus into two locations.
Also, the new campuses will be “a walkable community with paths, trails and covered walkways”, Ford said, and include autonomous vehicles, on-demand shuttles, ebikes, new onsite services for workers and faster wireless internet.
This new project for Ford is scheduled to be apart of a 10-year transformation of its more than 60-year-old Dearborn facilities.
Also included the new plans, new buildings will reduce energy use by about 50 percent, save water and include the new zero-waste, zero-energy, zero-water Sustainability Showcase.
Construction of the new product campus begins this month at the Ford Research and Engineering Center. The majority of work is expected to be complete by 2023. Major work on the second campus around Ford World Headquarters begins in 2021 and is expected to be complete in 2026.
