Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has broken ground on the construction of a new expansion project on a 5-acre site in Novi, MI. Slated for completion in the fall of 2019, the 88,000-sq.-ft. building will house a technology showroom, a technical training center and a 15,000-sq.-ft. laboratory and calibration hub. The two-story office area will have glass walls and windows with a view of the nearly 11,000-sq.-ft. Hexagon showroom and demonstration area from both levels.
Expanding Hexagon's presence in the Midwest, the Center of Excellence will aim to support advanced manufacturing in the region. Hexagon will consolidate all of its Manufacturing Intelligence businesses in the greater Detroit area into a central location, which includes MSC Software, Production Software (formerly Vero Software), Q-DAS and its metrology solutions portfolio. Employees from the AutonomouStuff and Safety Critical brands of Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence division will also work from the new site.
The two-story property's building design will incorporate lighting controls and sensors to reduce energy consumption and use 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, the company reports.
Hexagon says it is 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.
“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.”
