Enza Zaden


Salinas, CA

Project Type

When Enza Zaden first came to Salinas in 2000, WRD Architects provided architectural and interior design services for their seed manufacturing facility. The 17,400-square-foot facility included a warehouse for manufacturing, packing, and controlled storage, a seed mill room, and 3,338 square feet for corporate offices.

In 2016, WRD helped Enza Zaden complete a seamless 24,400-square-foot addition to keep up with the high seed demand and bring all of its Salinas operations back under one roof. The expansion included temperature- and humidity-controlled rooms for storing seeds as well as space to support the expanded seed cleaning, treatment, cold storage and packing processes. In 2017, Enza Zaden installed solar panels to use renewable energy, which is consistent with the company’s commitment to sustainability.

Early in the design process, WRD’s interior design team worked with client to develop a modern, fresh look that was consistent with the brand. The office design encourages open communication and flexible work spaces. Each desk is a sit-stand desk promotes employee wellness.
