Tyson JTL


Tyson Foods renovated the JTL Building located at 516 E. Emma Avenue as part of a renewed commitment to the revitalization of downtown Springdale in their partnership with the Downtown Springdale Alliance. The building has historically been used as a trucking warehouse and a farm and home supply store

The new renovations utilize the original trucking bay windows to bring natural light into all workspaces. Retaining the original exposed wood joist ceiling, the windows allow deep light penetration into the space while offering a layer of sound absorption.

The building includes a dine-in café and a centralized break space that creates a “living room” between the open office areas. Collaborative spaces are dispersed throughout the office to encourage teamwork and community. Also included in the newly renovated spaces is the Company Store, a wholesale outlet for employees to purchase company products and limited grocery items.

The architect was responsible for leading the development of: Workplace Strategy, Space Programming, Interior Design, Furniture Selection and Specifications.
