Bell Helicopter has commenced construction for its new global headquarters in Fort Worth, TX. The company plans to invest $230 million in new and upgraded facilities as part of a comprehensive revitalization effort. The revitalization effort is designed to consolidate more than 1.2 million ft² of excess space, reduce building maintenance costs, and reduce 20% of the company's waste and energy use by 2015. These changes are expected to improve coordination and collaboration, increase cost-competitiveness and are projected to save $19 million in annual operating expenses. Bell Helicopter's future headquarters will be home to administration, support functions, program offices, a customer center, and an integrated training facility.
