The 1980s canning plant was transformed into a world-class Research and Development center that surrounds visitors with an immersive experience in the brand and products. A new entrance was created by replacing the existing façade with a point-supported glass façade and vestibule to maximize visibility from the exterior. Behind the façade, a new atrium and skylight were added to bring daylight into the core of the building.
Clients are invited to touch down in the client lounges before heading off to work with Bemis designers and engineers in various labs, a test kitchen, a working café, and a variety of office and conference spaces.
