Located on approximately 350 acres in Bentonville, Ark., the new Walmart Home Office Campus will comprise more than 30 buildings, including office buildings, service buildings, parking decks, and amenity buildings.

The campus was designed to honor Walmart’s heritage and will support the growth happening in the area by utilizing 1.7 million cubic feet of regionally-sourced lumber for the structures, making it the largest mass timber campus project in the United States.

The buildings will all provide ample natural light and incorporate sustainable design strategies. These strategies include energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems and over 10 acres of lakes for stormwater collection, which will be used for smart irrigation and rainwater reuse. The campus will also feature thousands of trees, shrubs, and grasses to provide habitat for wildlife, shade paths, bike trails, and to reconnect associates with nature. The project was designed and is being built with the goal of creating zero waste, operating with 100% renewable energy, and using sustainable resources and products.
