Project Waymo, formally known as Project Mars, was completed by Rudick in June of 2022; a 9-acre autonomous trucking campus for Waymo, a subsidiary of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, Inc. The facility is the first in the country within the expanding autonomous commercial trucking industry. Located in Lancaster, Texas, the compound acts as a central launching point for the company’s southwest operations with 10 truck bays, diesel fueling stations, six EV charging stations and 36 workstations. The project brings more than 100 jobs to the area with the big rigs navigating commercial routes on Interstate 10, Interstate 20 and Interstate 45.
The design and construction of the facility is unique in that it combines distinctive office spaces with high-tech areas for industrial research and development. The industrial space supports heavy-duty payload capacities necessary for the customer’s business activities in close proximity to Executive and Administrative personnel overseeing the operation. The structure, which is LEED-certified, is comprised of two buildings with burnished block structures and features and extensive paving scope.
