Kreg Tool HQ

From humble beginnings as a family-owned company in 1989 (Craig Sommerfield developed its first jig to hide holes in his kitchen cabinets), Kreg Tool has been passionate about providing tools that help everyone—from professionals to novices—realize well-crafted building projects. The company is now synonymous with pocket joinery and a leading name in woodworking.

Kreg Tool HQ assembles a 2-story, 154,742-sf office and manufacturing facility on a sustainably managed 25.12-acre campus. The cyclopean, 14’x40’ precast concrete panels that line the manufacturing facility’s perimeter provide a substantial backdrop to the office’s (relatively) more delicate framework of exposed steel columns, beams, and purlins that support glulam wood decking.  

A common ‘marketplace’ serves as the Headquarters’ central spine, beating as an interstitial ‘heart’ to connect the office’s ‘head’ and the manufacturing facility’s ‘hands’.

Expected completion is summer of 2021.
