Total Expert Moves Into New Headquarters in Eden Prairie
Total Expert’s staff of engineers, customer support, sales and marketing professionals moved into a new 10,460-square-foot office space in September.
We’ve moved twice in the last two years. The new office space comes after a good deal of expansion and growth in 2015 and 2016.
Total Expert welcomed many new employees over the course of the last year, making a new office space a necessity.
“All in all, the move went quite smoothly,” said Bill Foster, COO at Total Expert. “The brokers and contractors doing the build-out were great to work with. We built in extra space to manage our current growth trajectory, so we can stay in one place for a couple of years.”
About two-thirds of the new office is open floor space. Collaboration and conference rooms, executive offices, and a warehouse-style workspace make up the rest of Total Expert’s new headquarters.
“The combination of fresh and new with a layout conducive to collaboration and a built-in warehouse district probably rates the move as an A,” Foster said.
Tucked in a cul-de-sac off of W. 62nd St. in Eden Prairie, Minn., the new office space is less than a mile from Interstate Highway 494. And, the Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail is only a few blocks away.
“Some of our bikers are planning to ride to work on some sunny days,” Foster said. “We have had great responses from the employees regarding the new digs.”
The new building has a number of areas for impromptu meetings and collaboration, including a room dedicated to shooting video and a Ping Pong table. Natural light pours into the building, keeping the area well lit, and the many windows give employees a clear view of the outdoors.
“We have turkey and deer as regular visitors. The view from the open office space is a nicely landscaped hill and adjoining woods with hardwoods and evergreens,” Foster said. “We love the setting for the new space.”
