In search of an American assembly facility for its large compressor products, Mitsubishi Heavy Industrial, Ltd. (MHI) selected a 26-acre tract of land located in the Lower Kirby District of Pearland, Texas. The site presented unique challenges due to the requirements of the Lower Kirby Management District, the prescriptive planned development zoning in the area, and the high development standards of the City of Pearland. MHI approached WGA to assist in site planning and development agreement negotiations with the City of Pearland as well as to provide site civil engineering design.
Phase 1 of the campus, currently in construction, consists of a 38,000-square-foot, one-story office building which fronts Kirby Drive backed by a 87,000-square-foot assembly building. This phase of the project included a large surface parking area and a storm sewer system necessarily sized to convey the 100-year event for all future phases. Water and wastewater systems were also designed to serve all future phases, minimizing the cost of any future projects on the campus. This project was immediately followed with Phase 1.5 which added a 50,000-square-foot warehouse facility and additional parking.
