The new 325,000 sf J.R. Simplot Headquarters comprises a 9-story office and adjacent 5-story annex building to centralize operations for this large agricultural company in Boise, Idaho. Sited adjacent to Jack’s Urban Meeting Place, the new head office consolidates Simplot employees at one central location and sets new benchmarks for modern, collaborative workspace. Special program spaces include a laboratory, greenhouse, conference center, test kitchens, wellness center, customer experience center, and an expansive employee cafeteria with open exterior patio areas that offer views of downtown.
Adamson’s scope of services also included all associated site work, including a new park; a below-grade parking garage for employees; as well as additional space for a future restaurant/retail amenity at the ground level.
The exterior of the building includes unique custom-designed precast concrete that emulates crop rows made in part from soils at Simplot sites in Idaho.
