Dacon Corporation, Client Mark Completion of HQ Building with Tech Donation to Haverhill Boys & Girls Club
Natick, MA-based architecture, design and construction firm Dacon Corporation has completed a 135,000-square-foot headquarters building located at 20 Creek Brook Drive in Haverhill on behalf of Edwards Vacuum. The company designs and manufactures advanced, specialized technology parts for industries such as semiconductor, power, renewable energy, scientific R&D and chemical.
To mark the building’s completion, a $10,000 digital arts program was donated by Dacon Corporation and Edwards Vacuum to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Haverhill and its Edwards Digital Arts Studio.
The studio is centered on engaging teens while developing technical skills and encouraging career aspirations. The program will be led by a graphic design educator and supplies teens with MacBooks, drawing implements and bean bag furniture to create a casual learning space of warmth and inclusion. Currently 180 teens participate.
The design of 20 Creek Brook Drive , a two-story LEED facility, centers on four functional domains: manufacturing, labs, offices and warehousing. In consideration of renewable energies, some of the location’s LEED initiatives include provisions for a future solar setup, reduced water usage, high efficiency cooling systems, EV parking and dark sky compliant lighting. Additionally, pathways for walking and biking will connect the campus to the existing city recreational trail system.
