New corporate building, Packaging Office Center refresh to provide 180,000+ square feet of office space
Ball Corporation broke ground on its new headquarters building, as well as a refresh and expansion of its Packaging Office Center (POC), on its existing campus in Westminster, Colorado.
Swinerton, general contractor, Stantec, lead architect, and Officescapes, a Steelcase dealer, are helping Ball to reimagine its Colorado campus with an inclusive and collaborative environment in mind. The campus will have a flexible, cooperative work environment between the new four-story building, POC, Ball Technology and Innovation Center (BTIC) and Aerospace Manufacturing Center (AMC), featuring a variety of work spaces including exterior gathering spaces and walkways.
Together, the new corporate building and POC will have approximately 186,000 square feet of office space. Inside the buildings, there will be a new cafeteria, auditorium, board room, offices, conference rooms, fitness center and other amenities. The buildings will also offer improved technology integration throughout for enhanced user experience.
“As our businesses, particularly aerospace, continue to grow and evolve, we need more office space to accommodate these developments, and allow our employees to better work together to develop innovative solutions that help Ball and our customers be successful over the long term,” said John A. Hayes, chairman, president and CEO. “We’ve had our North American packaging headquarters, our innovation and technology center and our AMC in Westminster for more than 30 years, and are excited to create a more collaborative campus-feel with the move and construction of our headquarters. Thank you to the City of Westminster, Swinerton, Stantec and Officescapes for helping us bring this project from a mere concept to reality.”
Construction of the headquarters building and POC is expected to be complete during the second half of 2020. Ball also will continue to invest in its other existing facilities in Broomfield and Westminster to accommodate its growing aerospace employee base in the area.
