The Dow Chemical Company’s new, 184,390 square-foot, state-of-the-art Global Dow Center in Midland, MI is open. Construction also commenced on a 20,000-square-foot H. H. Dow Visitors and Heritage Center, and pedestrian link that will further transform the campus.
“The Global Dow Center has profoundly transformed their Midland campus, and its environmentally conscious design not only reinforces Dow’s commitment to sustainability, but it also keenly reflects Dow’s innovative and inclusive corporate culture,” said KIRCO’s Quinn Kiriluk, which developed the project that will pursue LEED certification.
The project features a six-story steel-frame and curtain wall structure that includes a 21,000-square-foot vegetative rooftop and a nearly one-acre decorative pond wrapping one-third of the building, which helps to dramatically reduce heat islands and storm water runoff. The site also has an enclosed employee walkway, connecting occupants to parking and other campus facilities.
