Goal: Compass Minerals recently decided to execute a multi-floor renovation of the company headquarters. The goal was to create a more modern, flexible, high-performance workspace to address the changing needs of its workforce.

Scope: John A. Marshall Co. worked with the client and architect to understand project goals, costs, and deadlines, then provided space planning consultation and product selections to meet all functional and aesthetic requirements for the four-floor renovation. Flooring and furnishings were selected for a wide variety of settings, from the main reception area to executive and private offices, to workstations and collaboration areas, to conference, training rooms, and executive boardrooms. Various configurations of flexible work areas were also incorporated into the design to allow employees with remote or hybrid work schedules to meet and collaborate within the office, as needed. Additionally, all employees were given agile, adaptable task chairs and height-adjustable work surfaces to allow for improved posture and wellbeing.

Due to the project’s large scope, our team helped develop a floor-by-floor installation timeline that focused on employee needs first. John A. Marshall Co. managed all delivery and product installation using its John Marshall Performance System (JMPS) to increase on-site efficiency, reduce waste, and allow other contractors to work in concert with our installers.

“Over the past year and a half, Compass Minerals completed a major renovation of four floors. From start to finish, it has been a pleasure to work with John A. Marshall Co. and Account Manager, Susan Rhyner, in transforming our office into a modern, collaborative workspace. The style and quality of furniture selected was the perfect solution for our office. Their focus on design services, space planning and overall budget was critical to the success of the project. With timely communication and installation during the entire project, they were able to meet our tight timelines. Compass Minerals values our long-term relationship with John A. Marshall Co. and could not have completed this renovation project without their expertise and creativity. Thank you for helping make this project a success!”
