OUC’s economic development team helped bring KMPG to the area by providing their Economic Development Rate Rider (EDR) and negotiating beneficial electric and water rates, as well as decreased utility infrastructure costs.
KPMG has committed to hiring more than 300 employees to work within its 55-acre, state-of-the-art campus, which will feature cutting edge technologies, including an innovation center to support training and client engagement and a heritage center to highlight the firm’s fervent history and culture.
The facility will bring an estimated 4.5 MW of new electric load and 50 million gallons of water annually to OUC, yielding an estimated $2 million in annual sales for electric and water. Future opportunities include the addition of OUCooling chilled water services, OUConvenient Lighting, and EV charging stations.
“This campus is our firm’s largest capital investment ever. More than that, it’s an investment in our people. [The groundbreaking is] a major milestone toward creating a world-class environment that inspires our professionals to achieve their fullest potential and helps enable our firm to attract and retain the best talent.”
