Blue Star Power Systems, Inc. Headquarters and Production Facility

North Mankato, MN | Commercial

Overview

On the edge of a booming industrial park, the new home of Blue Star Power Systems, Inc. is the culmination of an impressive decade of growth for the company, a manufacturer of power generators sold across America and Canada.


Opportunity

While the majority of the facility’s square footage is provisioned for product manufacturing and warehousing, the new facility’s south wing is the smartly designed headquarters for the tech-forward company whose team recently eclipsed 100 employees and outgrew their previous location.

Solution

The team collectively identified furnishings, architectural products and workplace technologies that supported Blue Star Power Systems’ work styles, and helped to create a space where their employees would love to work. The main entry area of the space provides an impressive welcome for both visitors and employees. Teknion Optos architectural walls help to delineate a series of collaboration spaces where customers and co-workers can gather around custom-designed meeting tables and utilize screen sharing and conferencing technologies. Meeting rooms throughout the facility are reserved through the smartly simple Joan room scheduling system.

Just to the left is the main, open plan work area where more glass walls create a flight of private offices overlooking semiprivate workstations equipped with height-adjustable desks and Humanscale monitor arms. The Cityline “beams”–customized with a touch of Blue Star Power Systems blue–provide convenience power and connectivity along with ample storage and accessory spaces.
