Innovative Industrial Spaces
CASE STUDY: CORNING DISTRIBUTION
Corning Inc.'s focus on employee wellbeing and satisfaction is evident in the amenities and finishes found in their warehouse.
Glass storefront and sleek wood accents create a contemporary space that rivals any Class A office. A cafe and dining area provide opportunities for employees to take a break inside while a covered patio with crisp lighting and ceiling fans provide an inviting outdoor area.

Showers and a mother's room are available for employees, but even external visitors are not forgotten. Corning set up rest stations within the warehouse for visiting truck drivers, providing a convenient space to unwind, use the restroom, or grab a bite to eat.
Addressing Worker Welfare
Coffee bars, gyms, and natural outdoor spaces exceed the needs of the facility but address the well-being of the staff. These elements support optimal productivity and low workplace turnover. Staff enjoy being at work and feeling connected to the facility, which in turn increases pride and accountability.
