Fort Myers, FL (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Haystak™ Digital Marketing, which provides digital marketing products and services for the automotive industry, today announced that it has completed refurbishment and remodeling of a 15,000 sq. ft. company headquarters in historic downtown Fort Myers. Haystak's new offices are located in the landmark McCrory Building at 1525 Hendry Street near the water front. The refurbishment was carefully designed and constructed to incorporate the latest technology and amenities, while retaining the character of the McCrory Building's original architecture. The office build out began in October of 2013 and was completed on March 24.
Julio Gonzalez, Haystak Digital Marketing director of operations, commented, "With the growth that Haystak has experienced, we wanted to provide our team members an outstanding workspace in a vibrant part of town, and make room for our expanding business. This historic area is quickly becoming a vital place of business, living and fun for our community, and we're looking forward to being a part of the revitalization of our beautiful downtown and the continued growth of the Fort Myers area."
The historic McCrory Building was originally constructed in 1936 as the Fort Myers Furniture Company. In 1947, an addition on the second floor increased the building facade to two stories and expanded the second floor. In 1998, the City of Fort Myers designated the downtown as an historic district, and in 2000 the McCrory Building was identified as a contributing historic structure.
Keeping the building's historical significance in mind, the interior design juxtaposes modern materials, colors and technology with the McCrory Building's historic brick walls, tin ceiling and polished concrete floors. The ceiling's original heart pine beams are exposed, and the refinished second floor addition retains the original character of the space by exposing the variety of woods used in the flooring. The completed building has all new electric, plumbing, mechanical, fire sprinklers, fire alarms, rated glass block windows and dramatic aluminum stairs. In addition, the roof is insulated from the top to expose the roof rafters. Further, the new space incorporates environmentally friendly elements such as carpet tiles and wall panels with high recycled content, energy efficient lighting and re-used furniture.
Haystak Digital Marketing's new headquarters also includes over ten miles of data cable and employee amenities such as ADA compliant showers, a changing room for infants, golf putting space, video gaming area and two employee lounges. Coconut Grove Construction Corp., a locally owned and operated general and roofing contractor, served as general contractor for the project, and the design was created by the Atlanta-based design firm Hughes Litton Godwin.
A grand opening party with refreshments and entertainment is planned for later in the spring. Community members, customers and media will be invited. More details will be announced in advance of the celebration.
