KAMAN SPECIALTY BEARINGS & ENGINEERED PRODUCTS

Bloomfield, Connecticut

 

Kaman Specialty Bearings and Engineered Products is one of five major divisions of Kaman, a $2 Billion aerospace company. The CEO needed their Global Headquarters’ renovation project to achieve three purposes. Executive Offices, Visitor Center and Sales Platform had to coexist in a small footprint while reflecting the quality and diversity of their products. Our solution featured a new glass, stainless and aluminum façade and building entry, designed to the exacting tolerances of their products. Inside, minimalist detailing and neutral colors set the backdrop for dramatic elements, showcasing the company’s history, product line and capabilities. Most visible is the 150 foot long graphic mural, commissioned to illustrator Bruce Morse. The film on glass piece portrays Kaman’s products as utilized in their application in modern aircraft and submersibles. The mural wall borders the Conference Rooms and the Executive offices. The Board Room doubles as a sales platform with video conferencing, display cases featuring finished product, and a large graphic depicting the company’s history, by illustrator Sean McCabe.
