November 27, 2023  By  Anthony Capkun

November 27, 2023 – Johnson Controls celebrated the renovation of its 144,000-sf North American HQ in Glendale, Wis., which serves “as a showcase of solutions for building owners, operators, and other industry leaders to create a new class of smart buildings that are secure, healthy, and sustainable”.

“This campus has been designed to create a culture of collaboration and sustainability with our OpenBlue digital platform at the core of its design,” said Vijay Sankaran, CTO.

Within the headquarters facility, the 12,000-sf innovation centre is an interactive space that expects to host thousands of visitors a year.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors to the OpenBlue Innovation Center where, together, we’ll shape the future of building technologies,” Sankaran added.

“This new innovation centre will serve as a source of inspiration for our customers, helping to improve the design, operation, and maintenance of their indoor environments, ultimately driving value for their businesses,” said Julie Brandt, president of Building Solutions North America, Johnson Controls.

Additionally, Johnson says the full Glendale campus is a demonstration of how building technology and design can improve a building’s efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and improve occupant experiences.

It includes a ground-mounted solar photovoltaic array system, generating 250 kW of power. Onsite heat pumps that use electricity rather than fossil fuel are expected to cut winter heating costs by around 29% and reduce GHGs. The new lighting system not only contributes to energy savings, “but also enhances occupant comfort and productivity”.
