CoBank Corporate Headquarters Cafeteria

"The collaboration and inclusiveness of the total workforce was magnificent." -- Des Hague, Co-Founder of Aegis Enterprises and Partner of WC&A.

Des Hague, Co-Founder of Aegis Enterprises and Partner of WC&A, is pleased to announce the completion of the new corporate headquarters of CoBank, WC&A's latest foodservice planning and design project. About 600 of the bank’s employees celebrated the grand opening of the bank’s new corporate headquarters last week in Greenwood Village, CO which is part of the Denver Tech Center. CoBank, an agricultural cooperative bank and member of the Farm Credit System which serves agricultural clients in 23 states across rural America, had been in its previous building for 30 years, also in Greenwood Village. The LEED Silver certified structure sits 11 stories tall and totals 245,000 square feet. Employees helped design the interior of the new building, with special attention to work space and co-working space. For more information:

WC&A designed and managed the construction of the new kitchen and corporate cafeteria for the new CoBank Corporate Headquarters. The new kitchen includes walk-in cooler and freezer as well as dry storage, attached to prep area and fully vented bulk cooking area. Back of the house includes Energy Star, high efficiency conveyor dishwasher with accessible dish drop area. Multiple work and food preparation areas are provided for fresh food portioning and seasoning. The cafeteria – a natural extension of prep/bulk back of the house cooking - offers finish cooking, exposed to patrons.

There are various grill elements with open flame char broiler and flat top griddle as well as traditional deli and pizza stations. For Italian food lovers there is a fully served pasta station and specialty food area which offers a rotating menu, depending on chef’s creative inspirations. The center of the CoBank Cafeteria offers self-service soup and salad bar as well as a fully loaded grab-and-go component for those who are in between meetings or conference calls. Finally, for community activities, WC&A positioned an open flame grill on a deck, just outside the cafeteria.

"This was such an awesome assignment to work on," stated Hague. "Everyone at WC&A thoroughly enjoyed the vision laid out from the initial meeting on; the collaboration and inclusiveness of the total workforce was magnificent."
