Transparency, light, drama – these are the critical components in Mylan Inc.’s Robert J. Coury Global Center in Canonsburg. These elements create a building that celebrates Mylan’s culture and high-tech nature, while reflecting its slogan, “Seeing is Believing”. The team was tasked with providing a lighting design at 30% below ASHRAE allowances, which brings light and life to the headquarters, enhances employee productivity and well-being, and falls within a defined, limited budget. As the building is occupied primarily during the daytime, daylight is integral, and an irreplaceable component in the design, providing ambient light throughout the building, and allowing for lower electric illumination levels.
