|AECOM awarded contract to build Faraday Future’s $1 billion North American electric car manufacturing plant|
State-of-the-art facility prioritizes sustainability to integrate
“A revolutionary approach to transportation requires an unprecedented
manufacturing facility, and
“Working in collaboration with
In keeping with Faraday Future’s mission, the production facility features a number of elements designed for sustainability and harmonization with Nevada’s natural surroundings. Structural glass, a water feature and dark sky-compliant outdoor lighting fixtures will welcome visitors and thousands of production workers by connecting the plant with the landscape. The project will also feature extended life-cycle materials that require less maintenance.
Additionally, the project will include sustainable and energy-efficient oils, elevator systems, and lighting, as well as prismatic skylights for daylighting of manufacturing. Even greater energy savings will be realized through roof-mounted PV solar panels for power generation, a cool roof Energy-Star coating system, and energy efficient heating and cooling systems. The current demolition work includes the digging of water retention pools to store water for compaction and use in the building’s cooling towers.
The facility will embrace visitors and guided tours with integrated viewing platforms and purposeful designs allowing for visibility to vehicles during the assembly process from a safe vantage point.
