Komatsu Breaks Ground on New Campus in Milwaukee's Harbor District
Construction is underway on Komatsu Mining Corp.’s new $285 million headquarters and manufacturing campus in Milwaukee’s Harbor District. The 60-acre site was a former vacant brownfield site overlooking Milwaukee's inner harbor on Lake Michigan. The new corporate campus includes a three-story, 176,000-square-foot office building, training center, museum and automation lab as well as a 430,000-square-foot, three-story manufacturing facility.
The project broke ground on Wednesday, September 9, and as one of the world’s largest manufacturers of construction and mining equipment, the standard ceremonial gold shovels were replaced with some of Komatsu's own equipment.
GRAEF is providing full service engineering on this project, including structural engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, plumbing/fire protection engineering, industrial architecture, landscape architecture, traffic engineering, and transportation engineering.
