Transforming the Research & Engineering Center in Dearborn into a high-tech, efficient, forward-thinking campus for thousands of Ford designers, engineers and product development workers takes vision.
Campus Transformation Update
Construction continues on our Dearborn campus as we make way for our 2-million-square-foot new central campus building planned near Oakwood Boulevard and Village Road. During the week of March 29, we will begin preparation for our building foundation. This work includes drilling at the construction site. As a result, you may experience noise and vibration.
All work will occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday in accordance with City of Dearborn regulations for exterior construction. We will continuously monitor noise, dust and vibration at the site.
As always, we appreciate your support and understanding.
