Johnson Controls to build new engineering centre
USA: Johnson Controls has broken ground on a new 105,000ft2 engineering centre and laboratory facility in Wisconsin for the design and testing of smart and sustainable building technology.
Located across from the current Johnson Controls campus in Glendale, the new facility will accommodate 250 employees connected with the company’s OpenBlue suite of connected AI solutions, hardware and software engineering, including building automation systems and controls, and materials testing.
Johnson Controls says the building will be a modern space designed for the engineering and testing needs of today, while remaining flexible enough to accommodate future needs. The design will allow for cross-team planning and exchange of ideas. The company will lease the property from owner and developer, Weas Development. Construction is expected to be completed in late 2024.
