HED recently applied its New Technical Workplace design strategy to the creation of a new North American Technical Competence Center (NATCC) for Veoneer, a leader in the autotech industry who designs state-of-the-art software, hardware, and systems for active safety, collaborative and autonomous driving, occupant protection and brake control.
Designed to help shape the company’s future in autonomous driving and active safety systems, the new technical center features both office and automotive testing spaces. Research and testing labs most effectively met on a first-floor ground level location with amenities on the higher floors. This unique stacking of the program allowed the new 180,000 square foot facility to be contained within a very compact, cost-effective four-story volume to maximize the square footage and overall potential of the site.
The new NATCC provides space for a team of more than 900 staff members and fulfills its mission to promote innovation and industry leadership through its design as a highly experiential, interconnected workplace.
