Whirlpool Corp. will consolidate its 15 owned and leased facilities in the Benton Harbor, MI, area into three centralized office campuses.

The three campuses will include the existing Benton Harbor Administrative Center and St. Joseph Technology Center locations as well as new three-building campus to be located on Main Street, between River Street and Riverview Drive, in downtown Benton Harbor. In addition to these three campuses, the company plans to retain its Hilltop Drive South offices in St. Joseph and the Harbor Town offices in Benton Harbor.

The new buildings will be highly energy-efficient and will be built to achieve Gold LEED certification.

"With more than 4,000 individuals in our current facilities, we have simply outgrown our current space communities," said Whirlpool Chairman and CEO Jeff M. Fettig. "This initiative is a good business decision as the new campus and related changes are expected to increase productivity and energy efficiency, and reduce operating costs."

The project is expected to take five years to complete.
