Trimble announced last week it has begun construction on a second building in Westminster, Colorado.
With the capacity to accommodate over 1,100 workers, the Westminster campus will be Trimble's largest employment center and will continue to serve as a central business hub for several of Trimble's core market segments including agriculture, construction, and geospatial. Construction is scheduled for completion in late 2018.
The Westminster building project will showcase Trimble technologies where contractors, surveyors, architects and designers will use more than 50 Trimble solutions for the planning, construction and operational phases of the new facility.
General contractor JE Dunn and trade partners in mechanical, electrical, plumbing, layout and concrete will use these capabilities to streamline their work and coordinate with other stakeholders in the building workflow—resulting in significant cost and schedule benefits. Project progress and the use of technologies can be monitored at: newbuilding.trimble.com.
"Trimble's comprehensive approach to civil and building construction technology makes it easier for our teams to communicate with each other, work more efficiently, and stay on schedule," said Vince Stellino, senior project manager at JE Dunn Construction. "We use Trimble technology on many of our jobsites, but it's an added bonus to have Trimble product teams on hand each day as we leverage the products they have developed for the construction of their own office building."
"Trimble's mission is to provide transformative solutions that impact every phase of a construction project and using our own facility as a demonstration project is an exciting opportunity," said Steven W. Berglund, president and CEO of Trimble. "For the duration of the project, we will be able to closely interact with all of the stakeholders, deepen our insight and utilize the learning in future solutions."
The building project will pursue a LEED Silver certification and will include an open design; ample co-working areas to provide flexibility for a highly mobile workforce; and a walkway connecting the two buildings. A large, multi-use space will open to an outdoor amphitheater, providing outdoor meeting space.
Trimble has facilities in 27 states with significant presence in California, Ohio, Minnesota and Oregon. The company's headquarters are in Sunnyvale, California.
