The conceptual design for TMK IPSCO seeks to accommodate the values and vision of the company, while creating a true campus environment for the employees. This is achieved through grouping the new building adjacent to the existing facility, enhancing the amenities and creating a “Commons” space. The Commons will contain seating areas under shade trees, a water feature and will be enlivened by the location of the café at its apex.
The ground floor contains the café, fitness center and training rooms. The two-story lobby cuts across the building from north to south to serve as a main entrance to employees and visitors. This TMK IPSCO “Main Street” provides an opportunity for showcasing the people, innovations and technology of the company. The conceptual design strives to enhance TMK IPSCO’s commitment to the environment, technology and innovation, as well as their leading role in the energy industry.
