Project overview: 

Novus International is a global leader in animal health and nutrition with a strong emphasis on corporate social responsibility and sustainability. Sustainability at Novus is founded on the triple bottom line: social, economic, and environmental factors. The company’s global headquarters, located at the Missouri Research Park in St. Charles, Missouri, is a nine-acre site that has been developed to a new standard for sustainable site design. The intent of the campus master plan is to preserve and enhance natural habitats, focus on improving vegetation and hydrology of the site, and create an active and healthy environment that employees can be proud of and inspired to interact in. The project addresses several sustainable design best practices including hydrology, wildlife habitat enhancement and monitoring, improved soils and vegetation. There is an emphasis on using regional materials and implementing features that address human health and well-being of site visitors and employees.
