Insulet Corporation in an innovative medical device company based in Acton, Massachusetts. It was founded in 2000 with the mission of improving the lives of people with diabetes, specifically through the their revolutionary Omnipod Insulin Management System. By moving their manufacturing facility from China to Massachusetts, Insulet has brought many job opportunities to the area and offer a product that is now proudly Made in the USA. This World Headquarters and American Manufacturing Facility project required flooring that had to run the gamut from clean manufacturing to cafeterias, engineering spaces to world class executive offices. The design team wanted all the flooring to indicate that this is a leading edge innovator, while simultaneously providing a timeless quality. Products had to be durable, easy to maintain, appropriate for their use, elegant and affordable. Pattern, color and finish changes were used as part of way-finding throughout the facility. A vivid blue is part of the corporate branding, so CI incorporated many shades of blue in the flooring throughout the facility as a subtle way to honor the brand and corporate identity.
This project used over 5 miles of Johnsonite base and thousands of bags of Ardex material in addition to the Roppe Treads J+J walk-off tile and Mats Inc. logo mats and vinyl flooring we installed in the building.
