McCormick & Company, Inc., manufacturer of flavors and spices, will open its new global headquarters in Hunt Valley, Md. This brings together 1,000 employees previously located across four different office buildings in one building that is designed to be LEED Gold certified.
“Our new location fosters greater collaboration and innovation, while also enhancing McCormick’s sustainability, improving employee health and wellness and bringing our passion for flavor to life,” said McCormick Chairman, President and CEO Lawrence Kurzius.
The building that is designed to be LEED Gold certified reflects McCormick’s commitment to sustainability. The construction incorporated locally-sourced, reclaimed wood and the building features an indoor green roof with native Maryland plantings. All furniture in the building is non-toxic, chemical-free, and largely comprised of recycled material. McCormick also seeks to promote composting throughout the building by only providing compostable serveware to employees and implementing a centralized waste management system.
The building was developed by Greenfield Partners, LLC and fully renovated by Studios Architecture; Gilbane was the general contractor for the project; CBRE provided engineering and architectural support; interiors were designed by Interior Architects; TBC assisted with branding. McCormick is leasing the building from Greenfield.
