Minnetonka, Minn. – Wednesday, June 1, 2016 – Emanuelson-Podas (EP) recently released details about its upcoming move to a new corporate headquarters in Edina, Minn. The majority of the move to the newly renovated 26,000 square-foot building just north of Interstate 494 in Edina will take place on Thursday, June 9, and Friday, June 10. The first full day of business at the new location will be on Monday, June 13.
Currently based in Minnetonka, Minn., EP’s new corporate headquarters will be the fifth in the company’s nearly 6o-year history. The new building doubles EP’s existing space, better accommodating the company’s expanding workforce and enabling better workflow and client service. The new space will also feature an expanded family and recreation room, a 4,000 square-foot space featuring a basketball court, inflatable bouncy house for children, ping pong and other activities for employees and their families.
Renovations on the new building – an industrial building built in 1968 – have been going on since early March. The new design for the space will blend elements strongly connected to the building’s industrial heritage with a contemporary look and feel. Development of the space was a collaborative effort between EP, design consultant Julie Yager and HTG Architects. Yager in particular worked closely with EP Managing Partners Mike Webert, PE, and Matt Fults, PE, to create an attractive, high-end aesthetic that reflects the company’s core values of family, service and trust.
Mechanical Engineer and Partner John Nordstrom, PE, said, “We’re thrilled with the building and the shape it’s taking. It will be a great space for our employees and clients, and also for our families and guests.”
EP has been proactively working with clients and partners to minimize the impact of the move. “It’s very important to us to put the needs of our clients first each and every day, but especially during this busy time,” said Nordstrom “Moving to a new headquarters is never an easy process, but we’re confident we’re doing this the right way.”
