The Clickstop expansion is so close to being complete, we can barely stand it.
Everyday as employees drive into the parking lot, we can see the progress being made. Siding is going up on the building today. Construction workers are continually coming in and out, and (as annoying as this is) alarms keep being set off as things are being tested and adjusted. But we all know that annoying drone of the alarms just means we are getting that much closer… right?!?
So, it has been awhile since we have shared a photo update. Check out the progress for yourself!
First, let’s take a look at the outside of the building. If you have driven past on 380, you have probably noticed some of the construction. Well here it is from a different angle. On the right hand side, the grey part of the building is some of the office space and conference rooms. The windowed side of the red section is the new Clickstop gym. Directly below this space is the new training room. The font part is the grand room and pub area. Behind all of that is also the rest of the office space and more conference rooms. As you can see from the left side of the photo, the expansion really dwarfs the old part of the building!
Now let’s take a look inside…
This is probably my favorite view in the whole building, and you can definitely see why! Impressive! The open space below is the Grand Room. The orange, blue, and green rooms are conference rooms. The room with the glass front on the right is the Skybox. The Skybox is where interviewees will come and talk to us about their potentially exciting new career. We love how open and modern this all feels. Can you believe this is in the middle of Urbana?!
If you come visit us, you will notices wonderful touches to tie everything together. The re-purposed wood is tied in throughout the building, from the staircase, to the plant boxes on the ground, to the railing on the upper floor. The stage has the same wood, as does the pub floor.
Here is the incredible stage. This is going to be the setting for all of our company meetings, rock star awards, and possible future talent shows. The floor, though in need of a good cleaning now, is stained concrete. As you can see, there is a TON of natural lighting throughout the building. This space will be filled with seating and will be an excellent space for employees to meet, eat lunch, or even have special gatherings after work.
So now, let’s turn the camera around and check out the pub.
Now this is what we call awesome. The Pub is going to be another great place for meetings, lunch, or just hanging out. When you walk into the space, you notice the rich colors, the beautiful wood floors, and soon there will be custom tables and booths. This space is wired so you can hear exactly what is happening on stage. We are completely in love with how this is coming together.
There you have it. This will more than likely be the LAST expansion update until we have it all put together and furniture in place. We have lots of cleaning to do, touch ups to finish, and LOTS of furniture to piece together, but we are getting there. Soon the building will be filled with Clickstop employees enjoying the extra space, collaborating in conference rooms, and enjoying lunch from our custom kitchen. So check back soon and we will hopefully have a finished building to show off!
