[ARCHIVED] Westinghouse structure visible

A steel superstructure for part of the Westinghouse headquarters and engineering campus in Cranberry Woods – the largest commercial construction project in Cranberry’s history – can now be seen from Rt. 228. The company’s Nuclear Power Plant Business unit is expected take occupancy in early 2009. Employees currently based at facilities in Monroeville and Churchill will follow in a second-phase move, with all employees expected to be in the new facility by late 2010. The project includes three office buildings totaling 844,595 square feet.

Officials from Westinghouse Electric Company and Cranberry Township credit a cooperative working relationship that led to the issuance of a building permit for the new corporate headquarters and engineering facility in nearly record time. Russell l. Bussard, Westinghouse manager for facilities and real estate said, “When we started the Cranberry project, one thing was painfully clear – we would be hard pressed to achieve the schedule that would allow us to be in the building prior to running out of space at our current location. Early in the project when we were still undecided on the location, we met with Cranberry Township, and they committed to providing ‘whatever support was necessary’.”

“Westinghouse is working with an extremely aggressive timeline,” said Cranberry’s Chief Strategic Planning Officer John Trant, Jr. “We streamlined the process as much as possible, to be sensitive to their timeline, and in turn, Westinghouse met all of our permitting requirements. They are hiring at an aggressive pace, which is also good for the region’s economy. That’s why everyone is anxious to get them into their new facility in Cranberry Woods.”
