Cemstone is a national concrete products company that has been family led for over 90 years. Cemstone’s customers range from construction firms and state highway departments to residential home owners. To better support their staff, vendors, and customers, Cemstone embarked on a phased renovation of their Minnesota headquarters.

The design team initiated a detailed programming and employee engagement process with Cemstone to better understand how the renovation could respond to the company’s workplace culture.

The design incorporates space needs identified in surveys – like areas for respite, collaboration and heads-down work. Highlights include a work café to seat 100, a 30-person training room, an expanded entrance for larger lobby, and an open staircase connecting both levels.
