Russell and Dawson Team is working on a design project for Young Pharmaceuticals to help design their new headquarters in Wethersfield, Connecticut. The project is a contemporary approach to a historic looking structure. It is a 20,000 square feet office building with some light manufacturing activity as part of the program. Because the plot slopes gently downward, the north-facing side of the building will appear to be only one story, while both floors will be visible from the south. The brick exterior combined with the beautiful custom built clocktower are some of the unique features of this one-of-a-kind project. An artistic rendering of the structure shows a brick building with wide, arched windows, topped by a white cupola.
Russell and Dawson was involved in the conceptual design and construction documents of the architecture, structure, mechanical, electrical and plumbing of this building. The historic exterior is combined with modern engineering to meet all current codes and to make an energy efficient building.
