Designed by Gensler’s architectural team, Jabil Inc.’s new corporate headquarters in St. Petersburg overlooks Blue Heron Lake. Reflecting the company’s sustainable and collaborative goals, the new building promotes a connection with its natural outdoor surroundings and with colleagues working inside. The curved building showcases an attractive glass exterior complemented by a bright, modern interior.
Jabil’s move into their new headquarters presented a big shift to a more open office environment. Acoustics were a primary concern of the Jabil team, since this would be a new style of working environment. Rockfon offered Gensler a choice of sound-absorbing ceiling panels for Jabil that met the project’s goals for optimized acoustics and modern aesthetics as well as sustainability and employee well-being.
Gensler selected three of Rockfon’s acoustic stone wool ceiling panels to meet the specified requirements for Jabil’s offices: Rockfon Sonar®, Rockfon Tropic® and Rockfon® Hygienic Plus™. Acousti Engineering Company of Florida supplied and installed all of Rockfon’s ceiling systems for Jabil. The project was completed on schedule.
Rebuilding and expanding its former two-story structure, the new facility allowed Jabil to stay at its same location and bring together approximately 2,000 employees who previously had been working at eight different locations.
