Barry Callebaut is a manufacturer of high-quality chocolate and cocoa products. The project included a 3,777sf addition and 7,885sf of renovations that were phased in four separate construction sequences based on the building being fully occupied.

The scope of work included adding and renovating Barry Callebaut’s main front office area and providing employees with a new break room and outdoor patio space, new men’s and women’s locker rooms and restrooms, and significant sitework, including additional parking and creating a new entrance.

We are very excited to showcase our new and renovated space to our visitors, colleagues and customers. Many thanks to the ReArch team for delivering this project!”
