Project Overview

The Toyota Powertrain Expansion Phase 2 project was one of the final projects in Toyota’s 4-year corporate realignment. It provided building functionality for powertrain engineering, research, and development. Additionally, the project provided office space for Toyota team members being consolidated to the Ann Arbor R & D campus from southern California.

All civil infrastructure was provided for the building, including new pavements, parking areas, and above-ground fuel storage and distribution facilities. All necessary environmental safety controls and mitigation measures were also provided as part of the site construction. The completed facility included (3) new engine dynamometer labs, (2) environmental chassis dynamometer labs with temperature ranges of -40*C to +40*C, (2) four-wheel drive chassis dynamometers, associated control rooms, metrology laboratories, and catalyst preparation laboratories. In addition to all the added research, development, and test spaces, all necessary building and environmental management systems were provided. This includes gas detection, refrigerant detection, emergency safety alarms and shutdowns, exhaust mitigation equipment (RTO), and on-site power generating equipment.

Project Highlights

  • (2) Above ground fuel storage tanks
  • Natural gas generators
  • 223 new vehicle parking spaces
