New Construction On A Global Scale

GE to build Global Research Center in Oklahoma


Published:

GE plans to build its Global Research Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The 95,000 sq. ft. (8826 m2) center will focus on accelerating mid- to later-stage oil & gas technologies developed in the company’s labs, such as production systems, well construction, water use optimization, CO2 products, and energy systems.

Construction will begin in spring 2014, with the building expected to be completed and operational in 2015. Miles Associates, a local architectural and design firm in Oklahoma City, will lead the design of the center.

In the interim, GE is leasing temporary office space in the City Place Tower in downtown Oklahoma City. Final negotiations are progressing with the Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Association (OCURA) on the property and are expected to be completed later this month.
