Introduction

Ornua Foods North America, a cooperative representing more than 13,000 dairy processors and farmers in Ireland, has turned once again to JDJ Architects, Chicago, to create a welcoming, natural contemporary look for its U.S. headquarters in Evanston, Illinois

JDJ Architects worked with Ornua on the 2020 update. Listening is a staple for JDJ Architects and the client’s needs were clear. “Through 20 years of experience we have learned that all clients have specific requirements, budgets and design style preferences,” said Jim Jordan, JDJ Architects Principal. “A successful workplace environment is that which becomes not only an extension of the way people work, but a contributor to their well being.”

Ornua is a legacy client for JDJ Architects. “From the very beginning we had common synergies with Ornua and it has been a privilege to work with them,” says Jordan. “Witnessing their growth and designing creative solutions to their evolving requirements has been extremely rewarding.”

“JDJ Architects was involved in previous office moves, so the fact that we worked with them once again for this project speaks volumes,” says Shane Barry, Ornua HR Business Partner.
