Hospira CQ Laboratory And Office Building

Hospira CQ Lab

Ardurra provided structural and civil design and construction administration services for the Hospira CQ laboratory and office building. The project was executed under a fast-track, design-build arrangement, which required close coordination with the owner, contractor, and various design disciplines. The three-story, 66,000 SF building includes 3,000 SF of mechanical space on the third floor, with an allowance for future document storage systems. The building features a large exterior brick spine that extends 12 feet above the roof, and continues through the welcome center and grand stair case. The front of the building supports a two-story, corrugated metal panel accented by the company logo.

The structural design utilized elevated concrete slabs on metal deck with both composite and non-composite steel framing. The building is laterally stabilized by braced frames strategically located within the building’s footprint. The building was clad with a combination of glass curtain wall and insulated metal panel systems. The project included design for a single-story, 3,000 SF building to house mechanical and electrical gear, as well as foundations and framing for cooling towers, with associated wall partitions to screen the equipment from view.
