The LEGO Group is planning to significantly expand and upgrade its global headquarters in Billund, Denmark as the company prepares to celebrate its 90th anniversary

The company will invest in the construction of Kornmarken Campus, which will connect the existing LEGO factory with a new 50,000-square-foot building to create a nearly 110,000-square-foot campus.

The Kornmarken Campus will house the 700 employees currently working at the LEGO factory and approximately 1,200 colleagues from the engineering and quality department as well as the engineering and workplace department who are currently based at multiple locations in Billund. It will feature office spaces, laboratories, test facilities, tool shops, and new molding areas.

“We are creating a state-of-the-art workplace that will further build our world-class innovation capabilities within engineering, quality, and manufacturing in the years to come,” says Chief Operations Officer Carsten Rasmussen. “By bringing together people working across key functions, the new campus will become a vibrant and inspiring LEGO ‘home’ for people collaborating to transform product ideas into LEGO play.”

Additionally, the company will invest in the construction of a new office building in Bilund’s center called the Innovation Building, which will provide a dedicated space for product innovation and product technology development. The new building will create a link between the LEGO Campus building and other LEGO offices located in the center of Billund. 

Construction will begin next year and will be finalized in 2025.
