In order to address and plan for current and future growth of Cargill’s Corporate Headquarters in Minnetonka, Loucks has served as the primary master planning, and site design consultant for numerous projects. Current projects focus on improving the campus experience for both visitors and Cargill employees. A new entrance road is being built to improve vehicular circulation, pedestrian safety, as well as enhance the first impression of the campus. A new employee courtyard is also being built which will be a flexible space that encourages employees to get outside and enjoy the healing and rejuvenating benefits of nature. This new flexible space will be used for large and small gatherings, corporate events, and a great space to enjoy lunch. Elements of the design for both the road and courtyard were inspired by agricultural forms and materials helping to tell the unique story of Cargill through new site amenities.
