ViiV Healthcare is a British multinational pharmaceutical company specializing in the research and development of medicines to treat and prevent HIV/AIDS. While the corporate headquarters is London-based, ViiV’s only HIV-dedicated research facility is located in Branford, CT. Opened in 2017, the site hosts more than 30 specialist scientists working across the spectrum of medical development, from early-stage discovery through development research. These experts are responsible for discovering and developing innovative treatments to help people living with HIV.


To efficiently support the growing needs of the facility, 3,216 SF of additional first-floor office space was acquired for the construction of a new training center/conference room, 3 private video-conferencing offices, a common lounge area, a reception area, kitchenette/breakroom, and an ADA-compliant restroom.


The large conference room is appointed with an oval, custom-made, open-center, wood-veneer table with seating for 34. The raised ceiling is detailed with Aniégré acoustical planks and recessed linear lighting fixtures, as well as a state-of-the-art concealed audio-visual projection system.


Designed to foster casual collaboration, the breakout area features swivel lounge seating and pendant lighting in various hexagonal configurations, all in keeping with the bold color palette of the ViiV brand. The kitchenette boasts an interlocking geometric backsplash, solid surface countertop, drink rail, and custom millwork in clear white maple wood veneer.


The more intimate video-conferencing rooms are designed to facilitate collaboration among smaller teams and the teleconferencing capability enables remote participation. The meeting rooms are finished in the same palette as the conference room, lounge, and reception area. Additionally, gasketed glass doors and acoustical ceilings were specified to promote optimal conferencing communications and provide sound isolation.


Following Viiv’s commitment to sustainability, JSA specified numerous cradle-to-cradle certified finishes and products and directed installation strategies that minimized waste.
