Endo Health Solutions is a diversified healthcare company with more than 4,000 employees in thirteen locations across the U.S. For their recently-completed corporate headquarters, L2Partridge designed the core & shell for developer Trammell Crow Company and handled the interior fit-out for Endo. The new complex consists of two five-story office buildings inter-connected by a glass two-story main entrance and lobby, and a 420-car parking deck. The building exterior was constructed using insulated pre-cast concrete panels with and exposed aggregate for the building base expression and a smooth, light sandblast finish for the upper four floors. The transparency of the aluminum and glass curtain wall assembly in the link connecting the buildings expresses the interior two-story volume, and allows a view from the interior to the large lake on the opposite side of the building. L2Partridge led an intensive discovery/programming process with Endo’s leadership which resulted in the key design goals for the interiors being extreme flexibility and transparency. The work space includes private offices, open workstations and an executive suite. Collaboration space was critical to the design—a formal boardroom, small shared conference spaces, open informal meeting spaces, comfortable lounges and a large conference center were designed to ensure meeting space for any type of task or meeting. Other building amenities include a full-service cafeteria and a fitness center. The building is LEED-NC Silver Certified, and the project was awarded a Gold Building Team Award by Building Design & Construction.
