Project Features:

The new world headquarters for Alexion Pharmaceutical is a complex and electrically dense laboratory and office space built for the research and discovery of life-transforming drug therapies. It was constructed using eco-friendly methods and designed to obtain the LEED Silver environmental standard certification. The building houses the Global Security Operation Center for Alexion World Wide.

Project Challenges:

  • The tenant fit-out work was performed simultaneously with the core construction which required daily communication among two separate construction managers, electrical contractors, and mechanical contractors.
  • Each floor had a separate tele/data closet.
  • The two emergency generators were installed on top of the 16 story roof, placed by a 600-ton crane in downtown New Haven with narrow street access.
  • Despite a major change to the lighting control system, Dinto’s redesign enabled the system to be completed within the overall project schedule.
