The Allen-Bradley headquarters building, a subsidiary of Fortune 500 Company Rockwell Automation, was strategically designed around existing amenities for long-term use and expansion. The KA team reviewed five potential sites in the Cleveland area, selecting a former golf course which was already being redeveloped into an office park. The new road system was not conducive to accommodating Allen-Bradley's programming needs, so KA suggested a reconfiguration that freed up enough land to support both the scope of work and future expansion plans.
With the project's location set, KA aimed to preserve the many mature trees that would help make the new headquarters appear as though it had been there for years. As part of preserving the existing vegetation, KA placed the buildings and parking within the existing fairways of the former golf course, and configured major entryways, breakout areas, trails, ponds and landscape accents accordingly.
KA carefully designed the building with the intent to create residual value. The building plan allows for flexibility to expand in the future or even downsize if needed. Currently, the 462,000 square foot building accommodates more than 1,000 employees and supports operational efficiencies within a comfortable, campus-like setting.
