Overview

As part of our ongoing planning work with General Mills, HGA directed a strategic facilities assessment of the James Ford Bell Research and Development Center adjacent to the World Headquarters. The study reviewed office, lab, warehouse and pilot plant spaces, and mapped relationships between departments for potential expansion and renovation. Final recommendations included renovation of office space, new visitor entrance to improve security and wayfinding, new lab standards, and new central warehouse to reclaim additional space for research functions.
