Project Description

Neumann Brothers completed construction of the Kemin Worldwide Headquarters addition, seamlessly attaching it to more than 6,200 SF of existing exterior walls.

The expanded campus offers fantastic views of our state’s capital building and the downtown Des Moines Skyline. The expansion includes offices, a kitchen/serving/dining area for 130 people (that includes over 160 pieces of kitchen equipment and an Italian wood fired pizza oven with a locally recycled historic brick veneer), a fitness center with the capacity to accommodate up to 75, 14 conference rooms, one (1) boardroom, two (2) fireplace hearth areas, as well as multiple break rooms, huddle spaces, collaboration rooms and skype centers.

The courtyard, designed to be inviting and comfortable, provides an outdoor area to work, relax, gather and host events. Features include walkways, a large stone patio, an outdoor grill and a beautiful waterfall feature that flows from a 60 foot diameter reflection pool at the center. One of the many outstanding areas of the addition – the courtyard coincides with the Kemin culture of collaboration, flexibility and appreciation of the outdoors.
