KPMG to construct new innovation centre in US

WCN Editorial Team 11 Jan 2017 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

KPMG, a professional service firm, has announced plans to construct a learning, development, and innovation facility in Florida, US.

To be built in the 14-square-mile community of Lake Nona in Orlando, the 55-acre campus is expected to offer an immersive learning experience that will enhance the skills KPMG professionals bring to client situations.

The facility will feature 800 guest rooms, fitness and outdoor recreational facilities, and multiple food and beverage venues.

Gensler, a US-based architecture firm, will design the project to meet the LEED standards.

KPMG deputy chairman and chief operating officer P Scott Ozanus said: "Our centre will be the cornerstone of our learning and development strategy, which will continue to blend in-person training and virtual options.

"It will give our partners and professionals the benefits of alternating between classroom and field-like training environments for an experience that is interactive, innovative, and collaborative."

Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs said: "This project includes 80 high-wage jobs, as well as capital investments of more than $400M. KPMG executives from across the nation will travel here for extended training, providing us with an excellent opportunity to showcase our world-class community.

"Their presence in Central Florida signals the strength of our professional service sector, as well as the preparedness of our workforce."

Construction on the project is scheduled to commence in spring 2017 and be complete in late 2019.
