Peoria, IL. – The design/build team of Turner, Gensler and Farnsworth Group has been working with Caterpillar Inc. on the study for the modernization of the Caterpillar global headquarters.  Caterpillar employees were integrated in the process led by Turner, with Gensler and Farnsworth Group providing the architectural design and engineering.  This integrated process evaluated options and developed solutions from a total cost of ownership perspective.  Caterpillar announced Friday that the study is complete and revealed a modern six-block campus design that spans 31 acres near the Peoria Riverfront.
