Project Description:

The Hartford consolidated five leased locations north of Hartford, Connecticut into one 457,000 square foot building that is known as the Windsor Campus.  The 2,400 employees located in this building enjoy amenities such as a full-service cafeteria, a coffee bar, extensive conference facilities, and this full-service Fitness Center and Employee Health Center.

The Hartford makes this facility available to their employees at no cost because they, as a company, are committed to providing opportunities for their employees to improve their health and wellness.  We felt that it was important for the “look and feel” of the Fitness Center to be very different from the office spaces that the employees occupy during their work day.  For that reason, the finishes, millwork and lighting include stone, exposed ductwork, perforated metal and industrial light fixtures.

The Employee Health Clinic has traditional exam rooms and includes offices for employee assistance, as well as a number of lactation rooms.  Its location in the building adjacent to the Employee Fitness Center allows for a synergy between these two Health and Wellness-related functions.

In addition to the equipment and programs that are offered within the Center, the Site Plan for this project includes a mile-long Walking/Running Trail for The Hartford’s employees to use when the weather cooperates.
