SageGlass

Faribault, MN | Food + Industrial

Overview

ISG collaborated with SageGlass to design a new manufacturing and office facility equipped with clean rooms for proper electrochromic glass production.


Opportunity

SageGlass needed a new facility that can not only produce its highly technical electrochromic glass but also integrate its products into the design.

Solution

ISG worked with SageGlass to design its 60,000-square-foot facility, the world’s largest and most advanced dynamic glass manufacturing plant of its time. In order to immaculately facilitate the proper production of these electrochromic windows, the manufacturing facility is equipped with clean rooms. The facility also takes advantage of the company’s product, having equipped reflective glass throughout the building to allow natural light to permeate the building. The spacious office layout has private yet non-partitioned working spaces and a modular building design to facilitate a future cost-effective expansion. The offices incorporate a modern, honeycomb workstation concept to allow employees to work at particular stations specific to the job at hand.
