Faraday Future receives permit and announces Bernards as general contractor for Hanford factory

Faraday Future (FF) announced that Bernards, a commercial builder located in San Fernando, California, will serve as the general contractor for the 1M square foot FF factory in Hanford, California.

The Hanford factory is a turn-key facility, strategically sited between the country’s two largest EV markets, Los Angeles and Silicon Valley. This marks a significant step forward for FF in its mission to deliver FF 91, its first production vehicle, to market by the end of 2018. FF has received the permit from the city government of Hanford for its onsite work to begin construction, prior to manufacturing and delivering the first FF 91.

As of 1 February the property was completely vacated. FF completed the planning phase, including interior and exterior design, progressing to the next phase of production.

On-site demolition and construction work began in March, as the first batch of production equipment has already been installed and tested to begin manufacturing.

FF is also collaborating proactively with local Hanford institutions and agencies to ready the recruitment cadences and hiring efforts for the factory. Several local training programs have been designed and hiring has already started.

FF announced its Hanford factory last August. The facility will employ up to 1,300 employees, working a 3 shift schedule.
