Global design and technology firm, IBI Group (IBG), is the lead architect on Ford Motor Company’s new Research & Engineering Center.

IBI Group is leading the project’s architecture, engineering, and landscape design in partnership with Snøhetta and Ghafari Associates.

The firm’s expertise in technology-driven design, coupled with its smart cities portfolio, is contributing to the world-class transformation of Ford’s Dearborn Campus. The facility is expected to further establish Ford’s competitive edge in the future of mobility and is set for phased completion in 2023.

“We are proud to partner with Ford on the transformation of its new R&E facility,” said IBI Group Director, U.S. Industrial Lead, Buildings, Todd Hoisington.

“Our technology and design expertise, together with our experience partnering with major automotive clients and delivering high-performance R&E facilities, uniquely positions us to support Ford in achieving the next level of innovation and design excellence.”

The 2M sq. ft. building will serve as the mobility giant’s new product development center, initially housing approximately 6,000 employees daily — mainly designers and vehicle development teams.

With portions of the facility expected to be operational by 2023, the project represents phase one of Ford’s ambitious Dearborn Campus transformation into one of the most advanced R&E campuses in the world supporting Ford’s transition to a flexible, hybrid working model.

The project is part of a broader, ongoing collaboration between Ford and IBI Group. The two organizations are working together to develop Ford’s technology strategy around buildings for its Dearborn and Michigan Central projects.

The facility adds to IBI Group’s global design portfolio of R&D facilities and corporate headquarters, including ExxonMobil’s R&D Campus in Clinton, NJ; and the Harwell Science, Technology and Innovation Campus in Oxford, UK.

IBI Group Inc. (IBG) is a Canada-based engineering services provider. 

For nearly 50 years, its dedicated professionals have helped clients create livable, sustainable, and advanced urban environments.

IBI Group Inc. (IBG) opened trading at C$10.16 per share.
