Volvo Cars University

Ridgeville, SC

The Design-Build team of Kahn-HITT completed the first Volvo Car University. Volvo’s University plays a critical role in the movement toward fully electric vehicles for a more sustainable future. The building contributes to this sustainable vision; its LEED Gold certification bolsters the program’s mission and creates a healthy and inspiring environment for employees.

Project goals emphasized low-impact and sustainability through energy and water efficiency, renewable energy, and space for green vehicles. The connection to nature is established through natural daylight, outside views, 100% fresh air ventilation, living garden walls, natural materials, and more.

The building is across from Volvo’s Assembly Plant. Embodying the brand, the refined exterior highlights the Scandinavian functional design with a color palette inspired by Volvo’s color standards, which links the building to the adjacent campus.
