Schimenti Construction recently completed the expansion of its company headquarters at 650 Ridgefield Road (Route 7). The project doubles the size of the firm’s space from 10,000 square feet to 20,000 square feet.
“When we moved to Ridgefield in 2009 we began planning for growth,” said Matthew Schimenti, company president. “The building we selected allowed us the option of access to the second floor which gave us a perfect way to expand as needed.”
The expansion also includes a redesign of the main floor with the creation of a new reception area, which includes four 47 inch LCD screens that feature company news, project photographs, employee biographies, live job site video, and more.
A new executive conference room has been added on the first floor as well as new waiting areas on both floors.
A dramatic new stone tread staircase with aircraft cable handrails leads to the second floor, which includes a new training room that can accommodate up to 50 people and will be used for employee functions, conferences and project team meetings.
The new contemporary employee café style break room features a state-of-the-art Starbucks Coffee bar, a fully functional kitchen with pantry, vending machines and comfortable seating. Its polished concrete floor and an exposed ceiling give the space a unique and modern feel.
An extra large copy and print room was also added along with additional offices.
“We have steadily grown since we moved into our space here three years ago,” said Joseph Rotondo, Schimenti vice president. “Our initial planning for growth has allowed us to make this substantial expansion with relative ease. We are excited about the future and our expanded home for our growing team of construction professionals.”
The company is also in the process of relocating and expanding its New York City location and expects to have new, larger offices completed in early 2013.
