WCN Editorial Team 19 Oct 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Aecom has won a contract to build Faraday Future’s electric car manufacturing plant in North Las Vegas, Nevada.

The $1bn project will produce 100% electric vehicles and is expected to generate a significant economic impact on the region.

The 278,700sq m facility will incorporate several sustainable features such as structural glass, a water feature, dark sky-compliant outdoor lighting fixtures, and extended life-cycle materials that require less maintenance.

The plant will also feature roof-mounted PV solar panels for power generation, a cool roof Energy-Star coating system, and energy efficient heating and cooling systems.

Aecom chairman and CEO Michael Burke said: “A revolutionary approach to transportation requires an unprecedented manufacturing facility, and Aecom is thrilled to be working with Faraday Future to help make its vision real in Nevada.

“Our involvement taps our extensive automotive industry experience and our integrated approach to delivering challenging projects quickly.”

Aecom’s industrial construction services practice has already started demolition work for the plant. The project has a construction value of about $500M.
