Proterra EV Battery System Manufacturing Plant
Proterra, a technology company that has manufactured electric buses in Greenville since 2010, is expanding its footprint in the Upstate region to include an EV battery system manufacturing facility in Greer. The central concept for the building is to have office and production space connected by a “spine.” The “core” is a centralized space that acts as a place where office and production employees meet. This will help to create unity between departments while modern amenities will be provided for production staff in the employee lounge. The roof is planned to be outfitted with solar panels, as part of an overall environmentally conscious design that will include adding additional windows to the warehouse shell for daylighting throughout.
