announced today it will expand the size of its campus under construction
in Houston to accommodate additional employees from the immediate area
and from company locations in Fairfax, VA and Akron, OH.
The affected companies include the Fairfax offices of ExxonMobil’s
Refining and Supply Company; ExxonMobil Research and Engineering
Company; ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company;
the Akron-based employees of ExxonMobil Chemical Company; and select
positions from ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company and
ExxonMobil Chemical Company now located at the Baytown refinery complex
outside of Houston.
“Including additional employees on the new campus will provide even more
opportunities for collaboration and innovation, supporting ExxonMobil’s
mission of delivering energy to meet growing global needs,” said Bryan
Milton, president of ExxonMobil Global Services Company.
The state-of-the-art campus will have multiple low-rise office
buildings, laboratory, conference and training centers and facilities
such as child care, a wellness center and other employee amenities.
The campus is located on a 385-acre wooded site on company-owned land
near the intersection of I-45 and the Hardy Toll Road. It will
accommodate approximately 10,000 employees and is being constructed to
high standards of energy efficiency and environmental stewardship.
Construction of the ExxonMobil Houston campus began in 2011. Early site
work includes the construction of access roads and bridges, central
utilities, computer support and parking facilities.
Employees will move to the campus in phases as the buildings are
constructed, beginning in early 2014. Full occupancy for employees is
expected by 2015.
