BMW Group opened the FIZ Projekthaus Nord complex in Munich in September of 2020. Representing an expansion of the company's existing R&D campus, the collaborative facility provides 1.6 billion square feet of space for engineering, research, collaboration, and administration. Comprising two office structures and a test-bench building, the integrated complex offers a dynamically connected work environment enabled by 20,000 servers and a data storage capacity of 90 petabytes. Accommodating 4,800 vehicle developers, the sustainably designed structure houses 200 laboratories and 100 test benches. Virtual construction methodologies such as wind simulation and computerized design verification were employed in the planning of the complex, which leverages smart building technologies and sophisticated user controls to achieve optimal energy performance. BMW has invested approximately one billion euros in the development of the FIZ innovation campus.
