Electric carmaker Faraday Future plans to begin grading on its $1 billion factory site in late June.
In a statement on Monday, the company said that it is scheduled to have heavy equipment on-site in early June.
“Working alongside FF design and manufacturing, AECOM is responsible for the facility’s architecture, design and construction,” the company said in the statement.
Faraday Future held a groundbreaking at the roughly 900-acre site in April.
The company has been reluctant to give a definitive date for when it expects to begin producing cars at the 3 million-square-foot factory. On Monday, Faraday Future spokeswoman Stacy Morris said the company expects to begin building cars “in the next couple years.”
Also in Monday’s statement, the company said six employees will move into a new office inside North Las Vegas City Hall on June 1. The company plans to have 30 employees working out of the City Hall by the end of 2016.
North Las Vegas spokeswoman Delen Goldberg said Monday that the company had not yet been approved for a grading permit with the city’s public works department.
