Bell Helicopter broke ground this week on its new Fort Worth, Texas headquarters, a 210,000-sq-ft facility that will house administration, support functions, program offices, customer center and an integrated training center when it opens in 2014. The Bell Helicopter training facility, currently located at Fort Worth Alliance Airport, will also be moved to the new global headquarters.

The new building is part of a $230 million facilities improvement program announced in 2011 designed to rid Bell of leased and widely scattered training, office and warehouse space across the greater Fort Worth area. Additionally, it creates more centralized, efficient and attractive facilities to provide Bell’s employees with “a better, safer, more comfortable work environment, and to attract and retain the talented workforce needed” to expand its business in Texas, the company said.

Most of the new construction and refurbishment will take place on Bell’s 133-acre Fort Worth campus. Earlier this year the company opened a 30,000-sq-ft employee center there. Bell currently employs more than 6,000 people in North Texas.
