Saint-Gobain has officially opened its new North American corporate headquarters at 20 Moores Road in Malvern, Pa. The 320,000-square-foot campus, situated on 65 acres, underwent a renovation over the past 18 months to transform the long-dormant site into a showcase for Saint-Gobain and its North American construction materials subsidiary, CertainTeed Corp.
The headquarters opened on the exact day Saint-Gobain was founded 350 years ago by King Louis XIV of France to manufacture glass for the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles in Paris. The opening of the headquarters marks the culmination of a yearlong celebration commemorating Saint-Gobain’s 350th anniversary and was celebrated today with employees, members of the community and dignitaries.
“Saint-Gobain and CertainTeed’s Headquarters is designed to demonstrate the power our products have to improve the quality of people’s lives. It is a shining example of how innovative companies can design, construct and renovate sustainable, healthy, comfortable and environmentally friendly buildings around the world,” said John Crowe, president and CEO of Saint-Gobain and CertainTeed Corp.
The E. Kahn Development Corp. and J. Loew & Associates Inc., in collaboration with Aegon USA Realty Advisors LLC, led the headquarters’ redesign.
