Headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas, Walmart just announced the dream team lineup of consultants tapped to design their new home office campus.

  • Walter P Moore is providing Civil, Traffic, Transportation, and Water Resources engineering services and collaborating with local firm CEI Engineering Associates.
  • Gensler is the executive architect overseeing the project from start to finish and designing the future office buildings.
  • Miller Boskus Lack Architects is the local architect leading design teams for the amenity buildings around campus, including the fitness center, auditorium, and food hall.
  • Sasaki is focusing on an urban design that will be an extension of the core of downtown Bentonville.
  • SWA Group is the landscape architect.


Plans for Walmart's new home office campus — their new "dream home" — were first
announced in May 2019. The company cited that the new campus was being designed with their associates and the community in mind. In keeping with their saying that "Walmart is people-led and tech-empowered," they are planning several new amenities for associates, including ample natural light, expanded food offerings, convenient parking, fitness options, and a child care facility, all within a modern, fully connected campus.

Said Dan Bartlett, Executive Vice President, Corporate Affairs at Walmart:

"When we think about the future, it’s crucial that we also think about how we are going to preserve our planet and resources for the next generation, while promoting well-being for our associates both today and tomorrow."

Sustainability is a key focus in the design of the campus and is directly in line with Walmart's goals to be powered by 100% renewable energy and create zero waste. Other initiatives include solar panels atop parking decks, energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems, and regionally sourced building materials (including mass timber construction). The new Walmart campus will feature thousands of trees, shrubs, and grasses to provide habitat for wildlife, shade paths and bike trails, and reconnect associates with nature.
