Redevelopment of Office/
Hershey Next Century Office
The Hershey Company, a global giant with international office locations, remains well grounded in it’s Corporate Headquarters in Hershey, Pennsylvania. LSC Design is working with The Hershey Company to evaluate existing office and laboratory areas through multiple buildings, assisting with programming and campus master planning, and designing cutting edge workspace.
Hershey’s aggressive renovation projects were spurred by their transition of manufacturing from a century-old facility at 19 East Chocolate Avenue, to a new state-of-the-art West Hershey facility. To preserve the distinctive heritage of downtown Hershey, the Company will continue to occupy a significant portion of the historic 19 East Chocolate Avenue facility, including consolidating several local headquarters offices into the vacated space. LSC Design is programming and designing those renovations, providing advanced international communications capability, collaborative project space, and staff amenities while honoring the values and culture of the Hershey Company.
LSC’s endeavor includes infusing the previously windowless building with daylight through new glazing and atrium space, incorporating sheltered walkways for arrival to the building, and relocating approximately 1,000 office and technical staff to high performance collaborative office space. The project will result in a more energy efficient and healthful workplace, targeting a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold level certification.
