The University of Connecticut wanted to make a statement that they’re on the cutting edge of research with their UConn Innovation Partnership Building.
The structure represents connection between research teams and business leaders, to give them the opportunity to develop new approaches to real world challenges.
Reflecting the surrounding environment while honoring the wildlife around the site was important to the Vassar College community. And, the architect’s vision captured this intention.
Built in an environmentally sensitive area, the Vassar Science Building acts as a bridge between two parts of the campus. TWS worked closely with the architect on a cladding solution where trapizoidal fiber cement and rainscreen cladding came together at exacting tolerances.
To say that installing granite on a 275 foot tall building is an enormous undertaking would be an understatement. Traditionally this would require multiple masons climbing to install each 225 pound stone one at a time by hand.
But when one of the largest stone construction project in New England was put in the hands of Total Wall Systems, the traditional way of doing a stone job was completely revolutionized by panelizing the stone and designing a custom hanging system.
Located in greater Boston, the Sanofi-Genzyme campus has a small footprint and unmistakable pop of color setting its buildings apart from others in the area.
When Total Wall Systems was brought onto the biotech building project, they partnered with the architectural firm to offer design assist services to make sure the full vision for the project was realized and completed quickly.
There are certain projects where time really is of the essence. And when a pharmaceutical company like Insulet is relocating their manufacturing from China to the U.S., timing is essential. For those who rely on Insulet’s products, their health depends on it.
Total Wall Systems was brought onto this project to meet a demanding schedule. But TWS was able to exceed expectations: TWS had the entire panelization project fabricated and on trucks two months in advance of construction.
Colby College redefined their campus experience with the addition of their Athletic Complex. The building serves as a beacon, welcoming athletes, students and faculty every day to a facility that is one of a kind.
This $250 million project was a large investment in the campus and a symbol of Colby’s commitment to excellence. Architectural firm Hopkins accomplished this by designing a ground-breaking custom facade. By teaming with TWS early in the design assist phase, they were able to to make this vision a reality.
