The time is quickly approaching when Sain Associates will pack up our office on West Valley Avenue in Birmingham to move to our new headquarters at Perimeter Park off U.S. 280.
Our new office includes approximately 11,316 square feet of space on the fifth floor of the 197,000-square-foot Two Perimeter Park South office building. The new space includes a large training room internal to the suite — something that is critical to our collaborative culture.
The move is planned for mid-March, and we’re pleased with the progress at the new location. Contractors are finishing up painting the walls and hanging doors. Floors are being prepped so tile can be installed. Once that’s done, they will install cabinetry and carpet.
There are items Sain has to check off the list as well, like purchasing appliances and other equipment for the new space. It’s hectic but an exciting time for us.
While preparations are ongoing, there’s still a lot to be done back here on West Valley Avenue. Our IT manager and consultants, Venture Technologies, have been hard at work setting up our new servers and testing all of our software in a virtual desktop environment. Our production staff has pitched in to help with testing.
According to Venture, most firms they work with have fewer than 30 software applications. Due to our diverse range of services, Sain has over 60. Each specialized area of practice has unique software applications. It has been a challenge to make sure that each software application will work properly in the new environment, but we’re happy with how well testing is going so far.
Stay tuned for future updates as our move date draws even closer!
