; Description: Kemin Industries Inc., a global
private company that develops ingredients
for a broad range of industries, has seven
divisions, each with its own R&D team. The
company decided to consolidate the R&D
teams in a single facility.
The visitor’s experience from Kemin’s world
headquarters is a unique one. From the welcoming atrium, visitors are escorted to either
the first or second floor labs. The design of
these open, modular, light-filled areas allows
visitors to walk through the space to observe
and hear about the company’s extensive range
of research and analytical capabilities. The
flow of visitor traffic follows a corridor that
assures the safety of the visitors.
Apart from public view, but with easy access
from the main labs, are office spaces, specialty
labs, conference rooms and informal meeting
areas. In addition, the new space includes
three multi-functional pilot labs—controlled
environments where small-scale production
takes place. When not in use, these pilot labs
can be easily adapted for equipment storage.
