Growth Forces a Move
Mon, July 14, 2003 — When a small company occupying a small office adds employees, just moving around in the office can be a challenge. "When we moved into our first office last year, it seemed huge," said David Schlotfeldt, Vice President of Development for Plaudit Design. "But as we added more people and more equipment, 475 square feet became awfully crowded. We were fortunate to find that Target Market© was vacating their office in the same building."
Plaudit Design has now moved into its new office with 1,666 square feet on the ground floor of the Midway Commercial Building. "Now we have a conference room where we can meet with clients and plenty of space for all of us to work efficiently," said David Schlotfeldt. "The conference room is nearly as large as our old office!" "A unique feature of this office is a huge walk-in safe that we use to house our servers" said Michael Schlotfeldt. "It also has room for storing parts and a workbench to build our computers."
When the building was an automobile factory in the 1920s, Plaudit Design's safe held the cash for paying workers. "We could hardly wish for a better location," said Michael. "This is an old building with character and tenants that include a photographer, an art gallery, and even a chocolate factory. We expect an architect to move in next door to us."
