WHERE WE WORK

We don’t just dream up ideas, we love building them too. We are designers, engineers, and craftspeople. That’s why we continue to stock our lab and shop with an ever-increasing array of great tools and equipment. Sometimes we think we can build just about anything without stepping outside our offices! It’s like a builders’ playground in our workshops.

Our workspace is constantly changing as we work to make it a better and more creative space that inspires creative work, out-of-box thinking, and good old-fashioned hands-on productivity.

We work in an environmentally responsible, LEED Gold certified building with 15,000 sq. ft of airy, creative space designed to cultivate fresh ideas, inspiration, and collaboration.

Our electronics lab is spacious, well-equipped, and constantly buzzing with activity. In our 4,000 sq. ft model shop, you’ll hear the sounds of designs being 3-D printed, milled, drilled, drafted, and crafted.

Our family-style eating area is the perfect spot to enjoy a meal and a chat or make your own espresso drink. Fear not: one of many the coffee-lovers in our group would love to show you how they craft the perfect cup. During the spring, summer and fall enjoy your lunch al fresco at one of the outdoor cafe tables found on-site.

The layout is complete with modern furnishings, ergonomic chairs, and standing desk options! We enjoy a collaborative work environment but also offer multiple dedicated quiet working areas and private meeting rooms.

Our facility boasts an on-site gym, with a private locker room and private showers, for those wanting to break a sweat while they mull over their latest design challenges.

At our office, the Wi-Fi is excellent, the coffee is great, and you can expect to overhear conversations that range from computational fluid dynamics to disc golf, to the antics of our kids/pets, and everything in between.
