"Including additional employees on the new campus will provide even more opportunities for collaboration and innovation, supporting ExxonMobil's mission of delivering energy to meet growing global needs," said Bryan Milton, president of ExxonMobil Global Services Company.
The state-of-the-art campus will have multiple low-rise office buildings, laboratory, conference and training centers and facilities such as child care, a wellness center and other employee amenities.
The campus is on a 385-acre wooded site on company-owned land near the intersection of I-45 and the Hardy Toll Road. It will accommodate 10,000 employees and is being constructed to high standards of energy efficiency and environmental stewardship.
Construction of the ExxonMobil Houston campus began in 2011. Early site work includes the construction of access roads and bridges, central utilities, computer support and parking facilities.
Employees will move to the campus in phases as the buildings are constructed, beginning in early 2014. Full occupancy for employees is expected by 2015.
