Ford plans new HQ to rival Google

Ford is remodelling, but not cars this time. A huge, eco-friendly upgrade is in the works for Ford’s headquarters in Dearborn, USA that takes a leaf from the book of Google and Facebook.

Ford’s mega new facility will move more than 30,000 employees from 70 different locations into two new buildings with a combined floor space of more than 350,000 square metres.

“Bringing our teams together in an open, collaborative environment will make our employees’ lives better, speed decision-making and deliver results for both our core and emerging businesses,” said Ford CEO Mark Fields in a statement.

Ford’s planned high-tech estate features walking paths, bikeways, an amphitheatre, autonomous shuttle cars, and huge outdoor spaces that cover even more area than the office space does.

Green areas also feature green tech like solar panels, rainwater capturing and a renewable system for air conditioning that uses the ground underneath the buildings to heat and cool them.

We could go on about the softball and soccer fields, the new cafeteria and the ultra-fast wireless internet everywhere, but you don’t have to take our word for it; check out the video to see just how huge this project really is.

Renovations start this month and are expected to wrap up in 10 years, with the bulk of work finished by 2023.
