Satara based Cooper Corporation, one of the country’s leading engine manufacturers recently expanded into a bigger, state-of-the-art office premises – Nariman House, to cater to the company’s growing needs and business.
Spread over 5.9 lakh sq.m with 8.8 thousand sq.m designated for corporate office, Copper Corporation’s new facility has over three floors (Ground+ three floors) housing all departments with more than 240 workstations and dedicated space for trainings, discussions and conferences. This is primarily to accommodate the growing workforce, facilitate better work environment and have central administrative facility.
Sharing his thoughts Mr. Farrokh Cooper, Chairman & Managing Director, Cooper Corporation said: “Over the years Cooper Corporation has relentlessly grown in terms of business, markets as well bringing in more employees under its fold. With the rising demand in forging and casting business along with addition of new verticals, we anticipated this need for expansion. This new facility stands testament to our commitment towards customers and the environment, which helped us chart our unparallel growth story. I would also like to take this opportunity to most importantly thank our employees, who have become part of the Cooper family; grown with us and in turn helped us grow”.
Designed by Ar. Amol Hatkar from Arcaids Architectural Consultants Pvt Ltd, Nariman House is the personification of Cooper Corporation’s rich heritage and legacy. The design of the building has been inspired by the logo of Cooper Corporation. The building plan has been designed in three ‘C’ shape wings, connected together horizontally with a hexagonal atrium. Each of these wings houses a department which handles various verticals of Cooper Corporation.
The building has been oriented after careful analysis of the sun path and wind flow pattern to maximise the use of natural resources. The external walls of the building are cavity walls to reduce heat transfer and special care has been taken to ensure rain water harvesting and harnessing the renewable solar power to meet the company’s power requirements. The floors are connected together with an unsupported flying staircase which is highlight of the structure and showcases the aspirational and go-getter attitude of Cooper Corporation. While different colour scheme for each floor breaks the monotony, the fountain under the staircase in the central atrium acts as a beautiful transition space.
Cooper Corporation’s commitment to quality, service and product innovation has consistently kept pace with the changing market needs worldwide. The company’s rapid strides in the global market bear testimony to this fact. Cooper’s products have been accepted internationally in countries ranging from Central America, Africa, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, UAE, Vietnam and Afghanistan. Today Cooper supplies auto spare parts and engine components to all leading manufacturers in India and across the world from Japan to Europe and the USA.
