Saint-Gobain?s new corporate headquarters campus in Malvern, PA?the North American home to the world?s largest building materials company?is not a typical corporate campus. As the company approached its 350th anniversary, they set out to build a headquarters that would offer a dynamic showcase for its products.The company assembled a team of designers from two firms?Bernardon and Jacobs?to transform a long-dormant site consisting of two office buildings into an integrated, world-class headquarters located in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

The renovation involved a pair of existing four-story buildings joined by a four-story connecting bridge, which the project team approached as two projects: the core and shell and the interior fit-out. The core and shell project combined a major renovation of the existing building with a 40,000-square-foot (3,700-square-meter) addition to expand the existing connecting bridge. The existing structural system was maintained and reused in the new design. After 18 months of renovations, the 277,000-square-foot (25,700-square-meter) building opened on October 15, 2015?exactly 350 years after the company was founded by King Louis XIV of France to manufacture glass for the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles in Paris.The design of the headquarters has reinvented how the company operates and has signaled a new era for the company and its employees. It includes 116 collaborative meeting spaces; over 800 workstations all with views of the outdoors (including those of the company?s executives, who opted out of corner offices); an acoustically sound cafeteria that is as intimate as your home?s kitchen; a fitness facility that outperforms many neighborhood gyms; a calming natural pond; a scenic outdoor amphitheater that includes a water feature; and 1.3 miles (2.1 kilometers) of walking trails.Using more than 50 interior and exterior building materials from its own product portfolio, the company sought to set a new standard for the modern workplace?improving air quality, moisture management, daylighting, acoustics, energy efficiency, thermal management and ergonomics. The company?s products can be seen throughout the entire headquarters in glazing, interior glass, roofing, insulation, gypsum drywall, acoustical ceilings and wall coverings. The company?s own building scientists collaborated with the design team on the selection of the right combination of products to achieve goals set out for the project, such as earning the U.S. Green Building Council?s LEED Platinum certification for both commercial interiors and core and shell.
