Located in Durham, NC, Parmer Research Triangle Park (RTP) is a premier research and development campus of 20 separate buildings, providing high quality, state-of-the-art office and laboratory spaces in one of the fastest growing regions in the country. The campus also features world-class amenities for seamless work-life integration, including an outdoor amphitheater, upgraded fitness trails, volleyball and tennis courts, cornhole courts, putting greens and a grand lawn. Among these amenities are unique outdoor social gathering and meeting spaces with modern architectural design.
Designed with Unilock permeable pavers, the groundwork throughout the outdoor seating areas on either side of the grand lawn reflects the innovative architecture of Parmer RTP. The sustainable approach to design was easily achieved with Eco-Promenade pavers in an Umbriano finish, offering a modern feel to the space. Laid in a herringbone pattern, these plank style pavers are arranged in rows of V’s that draw the eye forward, creating the illusion of linear movement while providing the best ‘lock-up’ for added strength and maximum performance. The Umbriano™ finish of these pavers is also factory sealed with EasyClean, an integral surface protection from stains, which offers a significant benefit in this high-traffic outdoor amenity space, where food and drink are frequently present.
Parmer Research Triangle Park is the perfect example of a well-planned office environment where inspiring and collaborative spaces take precedent; encouraging work-life balance and a sense of community within the campus. With outdoor spaces being are more important than ever, Parmer RTP places emphasis on their unique outdoor amenities for a one-of-a-kind and engaging work experience.
