Where technology meets nature.
A sophisticated development center makes the most of its natural setting.
Centralizing talent and technology.
Robert Bosch, LLC realized their existing Research and Development North America headquarters site in Farmington Hills would not have capacity to expand their research capabilities in the automotive electronics and chassis systems market. The development of the Plymouth Township Research and Development Center allowed Bosch to consolidate research operations located in lease buildings throughout metro Detroit under one roof and create a dynamic, collaborative work space that also has the amenities to attract and retain top-tier talent and enhance the well-being of its workforce.

HED provided Bosch a facility concept that allows expansion in multiple phases to accommodate growth in research and development activities on the campus as Bosch continues to expand its presence in the US automotive marketplace.
