We’re happy to announce that Infinite Energy has started construction on a new—and long-awaited—state-of-the-art facility at our Florida headquarters.
Heavy equipment began demolishing our old building Friday, November 22, in front of a crowd of some of our more than 300 employees at a groundbreaking and demolition ceremony. Local elected officials and area business leaders also attended the ceremony.
At 33,740 square feet, the new office will be more than quadruple the size of the old building. It will include a solar-panel-covered roof, a 2,000-square-foot employee café and several collaboration and meeting rooms. Co-founders Darin and Rich say they wanted to bring in modern amenities to help the company continue to innovate.
There are also plans to display our 25th anniversary time capsule in the lobby of the new building. The capsule, which contains such things as newspaper articles, photos and even a Google Nest Learning Thermostat, was put together this year to celebrate how long we’ve been in business. We’ll open the capsule in 2044 at our 50th anniversary.
The good folks helping us construct this fantastic new building say it should be done in 2021.
The old building, one of four situated on Infinite Energy’s 5-acre campus, was the first office building Rich and Darin purchased more than 20 years ago. They added the others as the company grew and they needed to hire more people.
At Infinite Energy, we’re always looking for ways to serve our customers better, and we’re proud to have a new building in the works that will soon help us accomplish that even better.
