American Foods Group


American Foods Group deals with all things meat — mostly processing beef but some pork and poultry as well. They have multiple divisions: fresh ground beef and specialty cuts, food service for restaurants, retail and grocery stores, international supply chain, and school nutrition efforts to help kids get quality protein. American Foods needed a new space for the company’s IT Department. They purchased an existing building across the street from the main AFG location and gutted the entire thing

The Outcome

We started with an inspiration fabric for the color palette and the design took off from there. Since this was the IT department, every person was going to have three monitors on their height adjustable desk. It proved a challenge to accommodate nearly 60 inches of screen space! Storage wasn’t as big of a need because they’re mostly paperless, working on their computers all day. We gave each person in workstations and private offices a tower with a coat hook for storage of Wisconsin winter coats, boots, and purses so the workspace could be kept clear of these items.

EBi needed to incorporate different types of meeting spaces: a quick vendor drop in area, a more comfortable meeting room for the executive team to have longer meetings, a training room that could be easily configured based on large meeting sizes or training classes, a small collaborative space for an individual team on the mezzanine, and a contractor room for outside individuals to work within the building for contract work.

Throughout the construction process, EBi was heavily involved with the project management team to ensure that the building best suited the customer. We provided detailed electrical plans for individual offices, and floor core locations for the training room and workstations. We also did flooring and paint finish plans for the subcontractors.
