The Specialty Manufacturing Co. makes metal and plastic parts for a variety of uses. The company has a long history in the Twin Cities and wanted to continue to invest in their location and provide for growth with an office expansion and renovation.

SMC desired to update and modernize the interior design of the office environment. Pope Architects completed the original building in 1989 and was able to be SMC’s design partner on the 2015 office update.

An open office area was added to enhance collaboration for staff. A new large sun-lit breakroom and large training room offer additional workplace amenities. The design integrates a continuous exterior to interior Kasota stone feature wall, and new  windows also update the exterior image.
