Energy management firm Schneider Electric opened its new North American research and development center in Andover, Massachusetts.

The Boston One Campus will also serve as the company’s new North America headquarters and is built to house about 750 employees across all disciplines of Schneider Electric’s business segments.

Laurent Vernerey, President and CEO of Schneider Electric’s North America Operations, will relocate to the new headquarters as part of the company’s mission to drive innovation and efficiency in North America.

Designed to create an environment that encourages collaboration with customers, R&D engineers and employees, the new campus was also built with the company’s vision of sustainable design and energy efficiency. The Boston One Campus incorporates about $8 million of Schneider Electric’s own products and solutions and is expected to achieve about a 30 percent operating cost reduction in its first year.

The facility is U.S. Green Building Council LEED Silver certified and uses Schneider Electric’s SmartStruxure solution; APC by Schneider Electric EcoAisle and EcoBreeze data center cooling systems, data center and server uninterruptible power supplies; Schneider Electric Altivar variable speed for HVAC control; a variety of ultra-efficient luminaires from Juno Lighting Group by Schneider Electric; intelligent IP security management systems from Pelco by Schneider Electric; and more.

The Boston One Campus is made up of more than 240,000 square feet across two buildings with a design that focuses specifically on employee collaboration and innovation, as well as the needs of Schneider Electric’s customers.

Boston One is also equipped with 53,000 square feet of engineering laboratory space that includes customer accessible, cross-discipline technology integration laboratories known as StruxureLabs, where Schneider Electric engineers test and validate products that go into real-world customer deployments.
