EXPERIENCE WELLBEING AT THE LEED PLATINUM SAINT-GOBAIN AND CERTAINTEED NORTH AMERICAN HEADQUARTERS


Have you ever wondered how your business could be transformed by focusing on the occupant experience?

Our Living Laboratory


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.

HQ Stories


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.
