Ford has finished building out its new, 240,000-square-foot transitional office space at the Fairlane Town Center shopping mall in Dearborn, Michigan, and the automaker just put out a new video walking us through the unique facility.

More than half of Ford’s Fairlane office space was once occupied by a Lord & Taylor store, which closed a decade ago, but as many as 26 retailers previously sat in the place that 1,800 Ford employees now work out of. The new office space will continue to house those employees while Ford completes its ambitious campus renovations over the next ten years.

Employee wellness, collaboration, and sustainability were guiding principals to creating the space, Ford says. Wellness rooms, reflection rooms for prayer and meditation, and lactation rooms for nursing mothers are all part of the new Ford space. The materials in-use there were selected both for sustainability and pleasantness, with a reclaimed-wood accent wall in the visitor area, recycled-content carpeting and zero-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) paint throughout. Lounge space, cafés, ergonomic workstations, and treadmill desks all help promote flexibility and wellness.

“I was both hesitant and excited about the move,” says Ford Supplier Technical Assistance Site Engineer Natalie Pohlman. “Since moving in, I’ve met a lot of new people. Having the team in one place, along with access to all of the collaboration space has made it easier to work together.”
