North American Crop Protection Headquarters
GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA
Syngenta’s existing U.S. headquarters located in Greensboro, NC is undergoing modernization to accommodate new technologies as well as safety and efficiency upgrades. Various estimates were completed to help the client assess the existing 70-acre campus. The scope includes heavy renovation, modernization, and consolidation of the existing lab spaces, the construction of a lab addition, the renovation of a swing space for temporary occupancy during construction, and the addition of a new headquarters building. The new headquarters building will include offices, amenities (cafeteria, coffee bar, fitness, wellness, auditorium, and conferencing), as well as new parking, landscaping, and other site improvements. A customer experience center is also included to facilitate tours, enable collaboration, and provide educational opportunities.

We are involved in the program design development, facilitating the project scope definition, identifying critical decision points, making project recommendations, and establishing the master project schedule and phasing needed to meet Syngenta’s operational requirements and financing restraints. 35 North is facilitating the construction-manager-at-risk (CMAR) selection process and will have project oversight responsibilities. Additionally, 35 North is acting as the construction manager for temporary swing spaces and directly managing Syngenta’s preferred vendors.
