The new Kreg Tool headquarters assembles a two-story, 154,742-sf office and manufacturing facility on a sustainably managed 25.12-acre campus. In doing so, the new facility will merge manufacturing and office components—formerly spread across three separate buildings—to deconstruct the siloed teams, create connectivity, and amplify collaboration between the two business components. The daylit office element consists primarily of open workspace. Between the office and manufacturing/warehouse components is a central spine that includes a ‘marketplace’ that acts as the corporation’s ‘heart’ to connect the office’s ‘head’ and the manufacturing facility’s ‘hands’. A testing lab, 3D print lab, product engineering fabrication shop, and other support spaces are located next to the office space within the manufacturing facility. Massive 14’x40’ precast concrete panels create the manufacturing facility’s perimeter and provide a substantial backdrop to the office’s relatively delicate exposed steel structural system that supports glulam wood roof decking above. Employee amenities within the building include a fitness center and an interior open-air courtyard on the 2nd floor. Outside, a walking trail winds around a storm retention pond.
