Elementis is the largest personal care and specialty chemical business in the United Kingdom. The North American Headquarters included research and development labs, scale-up pilot plant, corporate offices, and a town hall meeting area, which opens to a patio on the rear of the building.
The design approach focused on maximum openness plus a connection between the office and lab space. The laboratory spaces consist of an open design approach with shared benches and high ceilings. To enhance customer and visitor experience, a display wall for Elementis products was designed for the reception area, plus there is a showcase lab with a glass front to allow visitors to observe the research work as they pass through to the town center.
