Oakland Technology Park—Laying the foundation for growth.
The governor’s vision for a research and technology park to bring new high-tech jobs to the state dates back to the 70s. Due to Auburn Hills’ enviable location close to I-75 and over 1,000 acres of land ripe for development, the idea took root, and companies like Chrysler took notice. This served as a catalyst for additional interest, and soon plans for The Palace of Auburn Hills and the Great Lakes Crossing lifestyle mall were underway. To support the influx in development, the emerging city turned to OHM Advisors to plan and design road, water, and sewer systems. Beyond engineering the infrastructure, we helped create plans for pedestrian and bike paths to promote connectivity. And we introduced then-emerging techniques for stormwater management.
