A street-side display showcasing the innovative use of public space as seen through the eyes of Philadelphia-area design firms.
A next-generation workplace that maximizes the comfort and health of employees through the use of a wide range of the company’s building materials that improve air quality, moisture management, acoustics, energy efficiency, thermal management and ergonomics.
The new headquarters boasts more than 100 collaborative spaces, a cafeteria, a fitness center, a pond, a fountain and more than a mile of walking trails.
The headquarters showcases more than 50 products from Saint-Gobain’s family of companies, including CertainTeed, SageGlass, Saint-Gobain Glass, Saint-Gobain ADFORS and Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.
Come check out the pop-up parks and stop by Saint-Gobain’s own parklet to learn how we applied our innovative product solutions at our new North American headquarters in Malvern, Pennsylvania.

At the new Saint-Gobain North American Headquarters, we’re not just surrounded by more than 50 products from our family of companies – we’re surrounded by nature at every desk, office, meeting room and common space. Our connection to the outdoors means improved health, comfort and productivity, and of course, it’s all sustainable.
With LEED® Platinum Certification for both the Core and Shell as well as the Commercial Interior, it just goes to show that our new home sets the example for how buildings should be built.SEE WHAT
Throughout the project we documented our story, why we were building this iconic home for our offices and how we were going to do it, as well as our vision for future generations of Saint-Gobain employees. The following videos capture our leadership team and their vision, as well as the architects and designers who were challenged to create a space that could house the heartbeat of who we are – our people – and the pride of our employees who made the products for the new headquarters.
Watch the capstone video with interviews of our employees that have now been in the space and how it has changed the way we work and feel.Press Release
