This project will create a campus to support a new research and development facility and customer experience center showcasing the company’s scientific innovation and agricultural products. Located on a greenfield site, the campus will include the main building, greenhouse, and equipment storage facility and will consolidate departments currently located at multiple facilities around the U.S.

Lab Workflows | Site and building layouts were developed around the workflow needs of six individual lab departments. Connections with the greenhouse located on-site were particularly important to facilitate efficient testing processes.

Collaborative Workspace | Office space for lab users is shared on the second level to increase collaboration between lab departments.
