Hertz Announces Worldwide Headquarters Campus Design

PARK RIDGE, N.J., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HTZ) today announced building plans for its new global headquarters campus in Estero, Florida, at the intersection of US Route 41 and Williams Road. The world-class, LEED-certified headquarters building design incorporates the key elements of Hertz's global rebranding initiative. Several campus structures and details incorporate Tuscan and Mediterranean elements, as a result of collaboration with community leaders.

"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.  We believe the building will help us recruit top talent locally and nationally, while supporting cultural change at Hertz," said Mark P. Frissora, 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.  Additionally, we believe our headquarters campus will help Southwest Florida realize its long-term economic development aspirations," Frissora added.

A highlight of Hertz's global rebranding effort is the company commitment to minimizing its environmental footprint through efficiency improvements, resource management and renewable energy production. The new headquarters 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.

Hertz worked with local community groups to ensure their feedback and 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.  The building height is 10 percent lower than allowed by zoning. A bus stop has been added per resident request, and resident impact has been minimized as a result of the main entrance location on Williams Road.
