Headquarters Update

30-Mar-2015

Rounding Third

We are in the homestretch before our move to the new headquarters facility. Throughout the project, we have had great participation with the Thursday construction site tours. It’s exciting to think that the next time we will have full access to the building will be on move-in day, Monday, April 13! This is a friendly reminder – in order to allow our contractors to finish the project uninterrupted and reduce risk to individuals, access to the building is limited to personnel working on the project. If you require special access to the building, please contact Laura Miller, before going to the site.

Carpool Update

The transition to our new office in Gray may create some challenges for staff employees, especially those that live near or south of our Larose location. To help ease the commute transition, Danos will provide a car pool solution. One 15-passenger van and one 5-passenger car will be reserved strictly for call pool requirements between locations.

For those who begin their shift at 7:00 a.m., the leave time from the side parking lot in Larose will be 6:20 a.m. For those who begin their shift at 7:30 a.m., the leave time will be 6:50 a.m.

Drivers will not be designated. We anticipate having a volunteer from each group to operate the vehicles and maintain scheduled cycle times. If you should have any questions, please contact Jay York.

Looking Forward

With regards to the new headquarters, I am most looking forward to...

....listening to Sadie sing the Star Spangled Banner on our first day when we raise the flag out front.

An office since I have worked at four different desks in the last 12-months(!) and the gym to get the heart racing before, during or after a work day!

I am looking forward to everyone being in the same building and at the same desk for more than a few months, the stylish new building, the new office chairs, the courtyard and view, the paved parking lot, the lunch offering, not having to talk about the new HQ move and that new building smell.

a straggler from last week - missing and not missing When we leave the corporate office I will miss...the coatings disco ball (unless there is a spot for it in the new building) When we leave the corporate office I will not miss...having to carry the 5 gallon jugs of water from construction to the coatings palace and having to replace the water in the water cooler.
