Construction begins on $300m Deloitte University in Texas

Deloitte has begun building a state-of-the-art learning and leadership development facility in the US town of Westlake, Texas.

Deloitte University’s 750,000 square-foot campus will be built on 107 acres and comprise 35 classrooms and informal learning spaces, 800 onsite guest rooms, meeting rooms and conference facilities, networking, dining and social venues, and recreational facilities including a fitness centre.

The facility will cost the network an estimated $300 million and is due to open in 2011.

Deloitte University will provide employees with complex technical and industry skills, and professional and leadership capabilities at various stages of a professional’s growth.

Deloitte said the facility will utilise ‘leading-edge techniques’ such as reality-based simulations, leader-led experiences, case studies and social learning. Deloitte global chief executive Jim Quigley said the learning centre will provide the network with a competitive advantage over its rivals.

“In 5 to 10 years time, I believe the firm that you’re going to see will not only have closed the gap but they will also have widened the gap on all of its competitors and one of the reasons is going to be that commitment to talent, that investment in our people and that investment in our culture,” he said.
