Clif Bar’s new Idaho bakery is an eco-friendly masterpiece of biophilic design. “The $90-million facility employs biophilic design, an integrative approach to architecture that places the utmost importance on the interdependent relationships between people and the world in which we live.” This is their first completely owned and operated baking facility and will employee up to 250 people when fully operational.
Clif Bar & Company is an industry-leading maker of nutritious and organic food and drinks. They live by their inspiring mission of Five Aspirations – Sustaining the People, Planet, Community, Business and Brands.
“The design team was tasked with developing an innovative building which redefines the nature of food manufacturing facilities and sets a new precedent for other factories to follow”, said Dave Anderson of Babcock Design Group and lead architect on the project. The bakery is pursuing LEED Silver certification.
Rich Berger, Vice President of Engineering, Food Supply at Clif Bar and Company said of Babcock Design Group, “Your talent demonstrated on this project will show the industry that you can certainly bring something to the table…Clif Bar has been very pleased with the work Babcock has done on our project.”
