Donaldson Training Center
As part of an ongoing effort to improve training and education of employees, vendors, and customers, Donaldson Company decided to transform an underutilized space at its Bloomington, MN, headquarters into a first-rate training center. Located below the main lobby, the 13,500 SF training center consists of a series of spaces, including meeting rooms, a refreshment area, a display center, storage, and updated toilets. To accomplish this extensive renovation and make space for large events, a data center was reconfigured and three concrete columns were removed. This project fits within Donaldson’s Workplace of the Future Vision Plan, which commits to updating the office, amenity, resource, and laboratory facilities in order to enhance employee satisfaction and performance.
