West Bend Mutual Insurance Corporate HeadquartersWest Bend, WI
Since 1894, West Bend Mutual Insurance has created some of the most coveted jobs in Wisconsin with its high focus to employee satisfaction and community outreach. In 2006, the company had outgrown the 15-year-old building and was looking to expand the space to better accompany its needs.
PRA was hired to design a 195,000 sq. ft. addition that would maintain the family atmosphere, minimize the impact on their bucolic campus while at the same time blend well with the already existing space. The addition featured a 42-foot Atrium that acts as a “family room,” which expands the facility and also provides the capability to add more space in the future. The Atrium and adjacent Conference Center were designed to be highly flexible and to accommodate training, meeting and food services for employees and communities alike.
