Coaxis, dba Viewpoint Construction Software®, today announced they will be leasing the historic 1510 Water Avenue building, expanding their headquarters along the Eastside Esplanade in Portland’s Produce Row district to make room for a growing employee base. The company has also chosen this time to officially change the company name from Coaxis to Viewpoint Construction Software to better support their brand awareness in the construction industry space.
The 1510 building will be redeveloped into a state of the art space for software development, holding 150-200 technology professionals. Viewpoint is committed to helping foster and grow the technology ecosystem in Portland, and partners with local business leaders and industry associations to best develop business and create jobs in Portland.
