Project Description:

RWS Life Sciences provides translation, linguistic validation and multimedia production services in more than 150 languages, including all European, Asian, African, Middle Eastern and American languages.  They provide language solutions for clinical trial management, linguistic validation of Clinical Outcomes Assessments (COAs) with extensive experience in a variety of therapeutic areas, regulatory affairs, medical device documentation, marketing and communications, and e-learning and training programs. This facility in East Hartford, Connecticut was designed to support their mission, which is to keep their clients ahead of the curve by providing industry-leading technologies and the most advanced translation methodologies to fit their needs.

Daylight and views to the exterior were maximized for the open office environment by locating full height offices and meeting spaces to the interior of this tenant space.  Both formal and informal meeting spaces in a variety of sizes and styles were provided to support different types of collaboration.  A Network Café space located at a crossroads in the space gives staff a place to unwind when there is a break in the action.  Training space is readily available on site to support RWS’s commitment to continuous improvement.  The use of the themed, bold graphics in the meeting spaces reinforces the global nature of the work that RWS Life Sciences performs for their customers around the world.
