Hertz Announces Worldwide Headquarters Campus Design

The Hertz Corp. has released building plans for its new global headquarters campus in Estero, Fla. The LEED-certified headquarters building design incorporates the key elements of Hertz's global rebranding initiative.

"The new headquarters will be a highly sustainable and efficient world-class building, enabling us to create a best-in-class work environment for our employees,” said Mark P. Frissora, Hertz chairman and chief executive officer. “ ... The campus design will be the primary example of our global rebranding program, and also reflects input from Estero community leaders. The Estero campus, when completed, will achieve our original goal of bringing together Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty headquarters employees in one location.”

The new facilities will use best practices in sustainable design and construction targeted to achieve LEED Gold certification — from energy-efficient lighting and equipment, and recycled building materials and finishes, to the installation of solar panels and water-saving fixtures, says Hertz.

According to Hertz, it worked with local community groups to ensure their participation in the design process. The headquarters will incorporate Mediterranean influence for plantings, pavers and security features, as well as other structures on the campus.

Hertz will bring approximately 700 jobs to the area, estimating that 400 headquarter jobs could be filled locally — with approximately 300 positions being filled by Hertz employees relocating to the area. As of October 2013, Hertz established a temporary headquarter operations in Naples, Fla., while the Estero building is under construction.
