Novus International, Inc. in the animal health and nutrition industry have broken ground on a new global headquarters facility in the Missouri Research Park in Saint Charles, Missouri.
When completed, the 90,000 square foot facility, a $20 million investment, will consolidate Novus’s headquarters and the Novus International Research Center into a single, flagship global facility. In addition to office space, the building will include 10 research laboratories, a state-of-the-art employee and customer training centre, a fitness centre, and a library.
The office space will facilitate collaboration with employees sharing an open, common space. The building will include a multitude of meeting spaces ranging from large conference rooms to â€œhuddle spacesâ€ for small, private meetings.
â€œWe believe that the design of our new headquarters will encourage a more natural cross-collaboration between functions, improving productivity and encouraging innovation,â€ explained Don Vondriska, director, Novus business development.
The Novus International, Inc. global headquarters is expected to be complete in late summer 2008.
