CVS Caremark Corporation

  • Location:Woonsocket, RI
  • Status:Completed in 2009

Challenge

Pharmacy chain CVS Caremark had outgrown its corporate offices and needed new, modern facilities to accommodate its business operations. Working with aggressive schedules and specific occupancy targets, these buildings needed to be completed on a fast track.

Result

Together with CUBE3 Studio, Veitas and Veitas developed three separate facilities to accommodate CVS Caremark’s business operations, the longest taking just 15 months to construct.

CVS Finance Support Center

A new 292,000-square-foot building was developed to accommodate expanding infrastructure requirements, housing 1,300 staff members. It included a 350-seat full-service cafeteria, dedicated conference and support spaces and a 690-car parking garage. The significant grade change across the site allowed for building utilities and support spaces to be located on the lower level. Construction was completed in 15 months.

CVS Marketing Support Center

A new, 54,000-square-foot LEED-certified facility was developed to bring the company’s marketing functions together. It houses an advanced technology conferencing wing, photo studio, 65-seat cafeteria and flexible creative lounges supported with a raised access floor. Construction was completed in five and a half months.

CVS Retail Pharmacy Customer Care Center

Working on a limited 18-acre site with significant grade changes required this 165,000-square-foot building to be built into the site. A 427-car parking garage was directly connected to the second-floor offices, while the lower level housed an administrative suite, department offices and a 25-seat full-service cafeteria. Construction was completed in 13 months and the facility achieved LEED Silver certification.
