Honda Transmission Technical Center

Honda Transmission Technical Center

Russells Point, Ohio

On October 8, 2001, Honda Transmission Manufacturing (HTM) opened its new and separate 17,200 square foot, $1.8 million Technical Center at the Russells Point, Ohio campus to facilitate the Product Engineering and Market Quality functions apart from, but adjacent to the existing manufacturing facility.  The center was architecturally designed to be a prototype for future Honda facilities as a state of the art, energy-efficient building using a high-performance sustainable design. The project's theme was "Facility Innovation" and three critical goals were established for the project:

Integrate the building with the natural environment in a way that improves and sustains quality of life with a healthy indoor working environment for the associate.

Conservation of energy with a 50% reduction in utility energy costs from that of the prior location including the reduction of CO2 emissions, a leading greenhouse gas that has been linked to the global warming concern.

Use a minimum of 25% recycled building materials
