Planning Design Research continues its role as Workplace Architect for the global headquarters of Eaton Corporation, a global power management company based in Cleveland, Ohio.
Currently under construction, the 600,000-square-foot facility is scheduled for completion in December 2012 with a anticipated move-in date at the end of January. Plans also call for the building to earn LEED certification.
The $170-million, semi-circular headquarters cradles a large pond surrounded by walking paths on a 53-acre site on one of the highest points in Cuyahoga County. The new building will enable Eaton to bring together more than 700 employees currently housed in three different facilities, including the headquarters building in downtown Cleveland.
In addition, a Wellness Center, on-site clinic and dining facilities presenting health-conscious cuisine are being integrated into the workplace to support the health and fitness guidelines established by the Cleveland Clinic.
