VIDEO: Danish toy-maker Lego's new campus in Billund
WATCH: See how construction is progressing on the 5.2ha campus and public park of Lego, best known for its iconic bricks
Construction is steadily progressing on the new campus of Lego Group, the privately held toy production company – best known for its Lego bricks – in Billund, Denmark, which is run by Kjled Kirk Kristiansen, the grandson of Ole Kirk Kristiansen, who founded the company in 1932.
Ground on Lego’s new Billund campus was broken in February 2017, and the project features 5.2ha of office space, surrounded by a public park.
At the time of its ground-breaking ceremony, Lego said the project, conceptualized in 2016, would take four years to complete, with the first of the 2,000 employees it can house moving in sometime in 2019.
Progress news comes after Lego opened its new business headquarters for the MEA region in Dubai on 14 February, 2019.
Lego said the launch of its Dubai office came in light of World Bank estimations estimations that there will be 125 million children aged up to 14 years in the Mena region by 2028.
