Prototype Development Center, Robert Bosch Corporation (USA)
Machine in the garden.
A sophisticated development center makes the most of its natural setting.
Centralizing talent and technology.
With offices, testing facilities and laboratories scattered throughout the Metro-Detroit region, Robert Bosch Corporation needed to create a powerhouse central location that would bring it all together: consolidate talent, and technologies. Streamline research and development. Accommodate recent—and future—growth. Establish a collaborative, dynamic community that would attract and retain top-tier talent and enhance the well-being of its current workforce. And embody the sustainable strategies that Bosch employs in its own work.

With a significant new expansion to Bosch’s Plymouth Township Prototype Development Center, HED achieved—and transcended—each of these goals.
