International R&D Headquarters
Lord Aeck Sargent provided laboratory programming and architectural design services for the new international research and development headquarters for Novelis, which specializes in the recycling and rolling of aluminum products.
This new facility allows them to both consolidate several remote R&D operations, as well as, strengthen their ability to continue as a global leader in this area of research and production.
Included in the project were pilot testing labs, material testing facilities, and numerous analytical instrumentation and characterization spaces. In addition to offices and amenity spaces to support the on-site research and administrative personnel, the project included several sophisticated and audio/visual-rich display and conferencing facilities to support and promote the facility as the worldwide hub of corporate research and development activity.
