International dairy products company Glanbia chose Twin Falls, Idaho for its US Headquarters. The company wanted to attract highly skilled talent and to be a good neighbor and leader in the Twin Falls community. The downtown site within the historic ‘warehouse district’ and a growing urban center influenced the massing and materials selection for the building.
The 40,060 sf building includes a steel structural frame with a sandstone and brick veneer with metal panel accents. Additional design features include steel canopies that relate to the surrounding warehouse facilities and varied brick colors to provide texture and movement to each facade. Site-specific constraints included the presence of basalt bedrock, which required blasting to remove, and the mitigation of ground water to provide usable basement space.
CSHQA was accomplished on a fast track schedule as part of a design/build team with building contractor Engineered Structures, Inc. (ESI).
