WOBURN, Mass. — Inspired by the company’s Irish roots, design for the North American headquarters building of Almac Group took elements from North American and European office cultures. Almac Group, headquartered in Northern Ireland, provides an extensive range of research and drug-development services to a global market. Located in Souderton, Pa., the 75,000-square-foot headquarters building and a 165,000-square-foot clinical packaging and warehouse facility mark the first phase of expansion to consolidate Almac’s North American businesses.
Approximately 35,000 square feet of RHEINZINK prePATINA blue-grey Sinusoidal Corrugated Panels and 18,000 square feet of RHEINZINK prePATINA blue-grey Horizontal Reveal Panels were utilized on the project.
Design for the project was provided by Francis Cauffman, Philadelphia. The design team created an open building that lets in natural light and provides large, expansive views to all employees. “We wanted the building to resemble Almac’s properties in Ireland,” said Richard Beck, design principal. “It was also important to give employees a strong visual connection and continuous access to the outdoors.”
The palette of materials used on Almac’s properties in Europe generally includes zinc, masonry and light-grey mullions.
The RHEINZINK fabricator/distributor on the project was MetalTech of Peachtree City, Ga. The RHEINZINK panels were installed by BAMCO Inc. of Middlesex, N.J.
