Project Description

Chelsea Milling Company

Chelsea Milling Company, the parent company for Jiffy Mix, wanted to create a new research and development facility as well as a new public entry for their clients and tour participants. The primary goal of the project was to connect two different buildings with four different floor heights over the top of twelve old grain silo foundations. The building needed to house the Pilot Plant space, a testing kitchen, and HR operations. A3C was selected based on their conceptual design, qualifications, and proven track record of delivering energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing projects.

The design incorporated three silo-like forms into the vertical circulation, kept the building open to daylight, and provided acoustical separation between the business and tour activities. The new space also included a corporate board room and a special demonstration kitchen for institutional clients.
