Hoosier Energy broke ground Tuesday on a new building on the south side of Bloomington.

About 115 employees who are now based a couple of locations around Bloomington will relocate to the new facility when it is completed in late 2014.

“This is primarily our staff that are our headquarters — professionals, engineers, administrators, human resources,” says Hoosier Energy spokesman Chris Tryba.

Hoosier Energy plans to incorporate energy-efficient LED lights and a geothermal heating and cooling system into the 83,000 square foot facility, which will cost around $27 million to build.

Tryba says the company is also building a new operations center near Spencer in Owen County where most of Hoosier Energy’s transmission maintenance crews will work.
