So Close!

Only a few more weeks until the new building is complete! We cannot wait to see it, but in the meantime check out the cafe and an office set up with furniture.

Virtual Tour!

Take a quick virtual tour of the new building in the most recent drone footage from Freshwater Digital. We can’t wait to see it all come together so soon! 

Exterior Progress

A lot of progress has been made to the exterior of the building. Landscaping is planted, sidewalks have been added and we have a finished parking lot! Employees will begin moving to the new building in about a month!

Workstation Sneak Peek!

Have you wondered what the workstations will look like at the new building? Custer describes them in the following way:

Viking’s workstations were designed and configured to promote well being and transparency through the use of height adjustable desks that encourage choice of posture throughout the day, lower panels that allow everyone access to natural light from the windows, and efficient storage space including a personal storage tower that can be used to provide additional privacy while seated. Each user has a desk mounted power unit for convenience and easy access, as well as work tool accessory items to help with organization.  Finishes create a fresh and timeless aesthetic that complement the neighboring architecture and ancillary collaborative settings, all while working within the Viking brand. Users are empowered to do their best work.

Interior Finish Board

You’ll notice these material selections within the new headquarters, giving the building a modern yet professional aesthetic. Throughout the building you will recognize hints of Viking Blue in the carpets and cafe walls, matched with solid neutral colors and accent wood paneling to bring it all together.

Moving Preparations

IMG_2321Excitement for moving day is growing at our Grand Rapids and Hastings offices! As Viking’s Information Services team and our partners at Custer work diligently to provide the groundwork for a smooth transition, many staff members are eagerly awaiting their move to the new facility.

Staff from our Grand Rapids office will be the first to move in and work in the new facility. With a transition to the Caledonia headquarters in late August, this group – which includes the executive team, sales support, marketing, and inventory & transportation – will work in the new building for a few weeks as a “test drive” before the larger group of Viking team members arrives from Hastings. Hastings employees who have been assigned to the new Caledonia headquarters will move into their new office spaces in mid to late September.

Only a few more months!

Getting Closer!
