JacobsWyper’s master plan for the Wawa Corporation led to the design of two new structures that significantly advance the company’s growth at its Red Roof campus: Annex 5, a headquarters building, and the Innovation & Design Center. Connected to other campus buildings at each floor, Annex 5 allows all facets of administration to be consolidated. The energy-efficient office building incorporates a modern glass curtain wall system with accents of Wissahickon schist, reflecting the historic nature of the site. It serves as the new front door of the campus, welcoming visitors with a grand, double-height lobby. An open office plan is supported by modern conference rooms and informal spaces for collaboration. A sky-bridge links Annex 5 to the Innovation & Design Center, the new home of Wawa’s state-of-the-art Test Kitchen for food and beverages. The space is designed with a flexible cabling system to easily erect a mock-up Wawa store, engage focus groups, test equipment, and hold meetings. The Center sits on a three-tier parking garage that nearly doubles available parking on the campus. These structures, as well as the impending renovation of other campus workspaces and facilities, are part of a phased strategy for long-term growth at Wawa
