Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence Division Breaks Ground on New Center of Excellence in Greater Detroit
State-of-the-art Facility Built with Hexagon Technology, Hexagon Style06 May 2019
The two-story property will meet or exceed all aspects of the current Michigan Uniform Energy code. The building design will incorporate lighting controls and sensors to reduce energy consumption and take advantage of exterior daylight to supplement office area lighting. Focused on the employee experience, the floor plan features open common office spaces and separate huddle areas to encourage collaboration and innovation. All interior spaces will be outfitted with new modern furniture designed for the various ways today’s employees work, whether on their own, in teams or informal collaborations. Other employee amenities include a fitness gym, coffee bars, lounges and a modern break room designed for multi-purpose functions including meetings, events and every-day meals and refreshment breaks. A high-tech solutions provider, Hexagon is focused on providing an environment that empowers team work, problem solving, and a high level of productivity among formerly separate areas of the business. The new center will be finely appointed in the Hexagon style with its modern color scheme and other company design elements.
"This is an exciting project for us, as we will utilize our vast wealth of Hexagon technologies during the build process — from total stations for surveying to digital construction. Ultimately, this state-of-the-art facility reflects the next phase in Hexagon's own data-driven evolution across industries to shape smart change," states Angus Taylor, President and CEO of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence North America. "Our investment in this Center of Excellence allows us to consolidate our technology teams and put them into a 21st century workspace that will serve both customers and employees with the highest quality services and workplace environment."
