Clark provided preconstruction and general contracting services for the construction of Takeda Pharmaceutical's corporate headquarters in Deerfield, Illinois. The LEED Gold headquarters is set on a 70 acre site and features two five-story, high-end office buildings and a state-of-art security systems.

Situated to allow for future expansion, the Takeda Pharmaceuticals Headquarters' 150,000 square-foot office buildings have a high-efficiency glass curtain wall complemented by Italian granite at the lower levels. A shared entrance lobby links the structural steel buildings, and floor plans include an open floor designed for flexibility and surrounded by perimeter offices. Electrical, telecom, and mechanical services run through a raised-floor system. Clark also built a three-story, 600-space precast concrete parking garage and completed site development work, including roadwork, surface parking, sewers, water retention ponds, and landscaping. 

The 70-acre campus has a state-of-the-art security system, including perimeter fencing, cameras, motion sensors, and a Remote Delivery Facility (RDF). The RDF is located 200 yards from the closest building, separating all receiving functions from occupied building on campus. Entry into the office buildings is funneled through the shared lobby and is monitored by on-site security personnel.


The Takada Pharmaceuticals' project achieved LEED Gold certification. The sustainable features are highlighted by the natural landscaping on display throughout the campus.

To achieve LEED Gold, Clark implemented several sustainable design strategies. For example, 50% of the building’s power comes from “green” energy sources. Other sustainable strategies for the buildings include:

  • preferred parking for low-emission vehicles and carpools,
  • bicycle storage and changing facilities,
  • energy-star roof,
  • water efficient fixtures and irrigation,
  • high performance curtain wall,
  • low-E insulated glass and sun-screening fins,
  • raised floor system, energy-efficient lighting,
  • occupancy sensors and daylighting controls,
  • skylights at central stairs (‘free’ daylight), construction waste management plan,
  • specifying materials with recycled content, manufactured regionally,
  • low VOC and an indoor air quality management plan.
