HUNTSVILLE, Ala. , Oct. 16, 2012 -- Today, Intergraph®, leading global provider of engineering and geospatial software, commenced construction of its new headquarters in Madison, Ala. The new headquarters will be located on the current Intergraph campus and is projected to open in summer 2014.
Keeping Intergraph’s established employee base in Northern Alabama was a priority for both Intergraph and Hexagon, its parent company. The five-story facility will total 250,000 square feet and will feature office space for 1,100 employees. In addition, the new headquarters will include a state-of-the-art data center, customer-friendly conference space, a food service area and lakeside terraces for both work and leisure.
“For the first time in Intergraph’s history, we are bringing employees at this location together under one roof, which I’m confident will foster innovation and camaraderie,” said Intergraph CEO Ola Rollén at today’s groundbreaking ceremony. “The building is a testament to Hexagon’s commitment to Intergraph and the Madison County business community.” Ola Rollén is also President and CEO of Hexagon.
“We are all very excited about what the new facility means for the employees of Intergraph,” said Ed Porter, Executive Vice President of Human Resources with Intergraph. “We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County, Chairman Gillespie, Mayor Finley and Mayor Battle, as well as Madison city and county officials, for helping make it a reality.”
The $58-million facility was designed by Atlanta-based architecture firm Cooper Carry, and the construction will be carried out by general contractor Robins Morton and civil engineering firm 4Site, both of Madison.
