Headquartered in Merriam, Kansas, Seaboard Corporation is a unique company with a rich history dating back over 100 years. They operate in more than 45 nations, across four continents, with a global workforce exceeding 12,000. Its roots are in grain and agriculturally derived products, although the company has evolved and expanded over the years to include several different divisions and brands.
The Team at Jonkman Construction was honored to serve as Seaboard’s General Contractor partner for this multi-phase renovation project. Completed in 2021, Phase One consisted of 31,000 sq. Ft. and included remodels of a third-floor office as well as the first-floor lobby and grand atrium with the introduction of a new employee cafe.
Phase Two was completed in 2022, comprising an additional 33,100 sq. Ft. with office remodels taking place across the first and second floors. Jonkman Construction teamed up with trusted partner Perspective Architecture+Design and worked closely with Seaboard’s internal team to ensure daily office productivity was not interrupted on other operational floors during construction.
The newly finished interior features custom milled tongue and groove rift sawn white oak, natural moss walls, and cafe booths that resemble shipping containers. The exterior of the building is highlighted by gorgeous Resysta planking made out of a mixture of rice husks, common salt, and mineral oils.
