Yes, it’s true. Javelin is moving. On April 1st we will be operating out of brand spanking new offices at 3457 Superior Court in Oakville. We are all very excited about the move and looking forward to the change since we have been at 700 Dorval Drive in Oakville since 1998. Superior Court is located off Burloak in Oakville just south of the QEW. Our new office is almost 12,000 square feet which is double the space that we have now.
We have contracted with Style Construction for project management and On-Sight Design for design services. Frank, Penny and Wendy are all working hard to ensure that the build goes smooth. The space that we have leased is flexSpace and it is the first development in the Great Lakes Business Park. Our next door neighbors are Canadian Tire Financial.
The space is brand new so we have had the pleasure of designing our own layout. Wendy (our designer) has provided us with a great deal of advice and guidance on best practices for efficient office layout. We have used Draftsight from DS SolidWorks (free and downloadable from the Javelin website) to view all of the plans to help make decisions on the new space layout. See below.
Of course, as the leading 3D design software company in Canada we needed to have our building design as a usable 3D solid model. Our team has used SolidWorks 2011 as well as BuiltWorks to model up the building and the structure. We have been using eDrawings and PhotoView 360 renderings to help us with decision making along the way in the project. We will be doing more work using SolidWorks Simulation to model and test the interior, exterior and other aspects of the building.
You will notice a different logo over the front. That’s new also. The Javelin team has also undertaken a project to update our look and brand. We will provide more information about that in follow-on posts.
We are hoping that you’ll come and see us in the new office. In future blog posts I’ll share some great reasons to visit. Some of them will be about awesome new technology we have and some of them will be just for fun.
