Company Moves to New 72,000-square-foot Headquarters in NJ Tech Hub, Bell Works Complex
Holmdel, N.J. (May 17, 2017) – WorkWave® (www.WorkWave.com), a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the field service and “last mile” delivery industries, today announced it has officially moved to its new headquarters at Bell Works in Holmdel, New Jersey.
WorkWave’s new office boasts a 72,000-square-foot space, with the option to expand another 72,000-square-feet. With the company hiring over 100 employees in the past three years, bringing total headcount to 222, a move to a bigger, more accommodating space was inevitable. The former world-renowned research facility, now reimagined as a mixed-use “metroburb”, is the perfect fit for WorkWave’s philosophy and company culture.
“WorkWave is ecstatic to finally move to our new home at the iconic Bell Works facility,” said Chris Sullens, president and CEO of WorkWave. “The tech hub atmosphere is vibrant, and is the perfect place to continue to grow and attract talented employees who are looking for a creative and inspiring work environment without the hour-plus-long commute.” He added, “Creating a fun, collaborative space for our team within this great building was extremely important to me and I want to give a special thank you to my long time friends at Hollister Construction and Michael Savarese Associates for helping bring this vision to life.”
WorkWave’s new workspace is fitted with plenty of multi-functional meeting and collaboration spaces, quiet areas for unwinding and even a recreation room with basketball hoops, ping pong tables and gaming areas.
In addition to WorkWave’s office space, Bell Works will connect visitors with an array of dining options, entertainment, shopping, a conference center and hotel, health and wellness services, public library, day care facilities, indoor and outdoor sports complex, educational facilities and more. The owner, Somerset Development, set forth an extensive redevelopment initiative to evolve the historic former headquarters of Bell Labs into the perfect combination of preserved greatness and new inspiration.
“We’re thrilled to welcome the WorkWave team to its new offices at Bell Works,” said Ralph Zucker, president of Somerset Development. “WorkWave was one of the first companies to recognize and share in our vision to create a dynamic, downtown-style vibe in this suburban location, and that vision is truly coming to fruition. In the coming months, we’re looking forward to growing alongside WorkWave, as we welcome a diverse variety of exciting new dining, retail, healthcare, and hospitality options here at Bell Works.”
WorkWave retained Hollister Construction to develop an approach for the planning, design and interior construction of their new home. Throughout the life of the project, Hollister collaborated closely with WorkWave, Michael Savarese Associates, Mancini Duffy, Becht Engineering and the entire project team to ensure project goals were met. During the pre-construction phase, various sessions were held to review budget development, value engineering items, potential long lead items and schedule development, all critical to the project’s success.
“We are very proud of the space we have delivered to WorkWave. From the very onset of the project, our main goal was to bring to fruition WorkWave’s vision for their new headquarters. Chris Sullens is a dear friend of mine and we know how important this move is for his continuous growth plans. My entire team is truly honored to have been a part of this project and we congratulate them on this big move and the start of a new and exciting chapter,” stated Christopher Johnson, CEO and Founder of Hollister.
WorkWave hosted an official office ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour of the new workspace on Wednesday, May 17. The Holmdel Mayor, Greg Buontempo, Senator Joseph M. Kyrillos and NJ EDA President and CEO, Tim Lizura all participated in the event.
WorkWave will host its next Career Fair on June 22, 2017, at 5:00 PM in their new home. More information and registration is available at bit.ly/careersworkwave. The company also has regional offices in St. Louis, Boston, California, Hawaii and Verona, Italy.
