Sandhills To Begin Construction Of Its Cyber Center In Lincoln, Nebraska
The new facility will house 240 employee workstations, a reception area and cafe space, as well as classrooms and other training facilities. The new addition is part of a larger trend of sustainable, companywide growth for Sandhills.
In October, the company finished construction on and opened a new IT facility, quickly filling an additional 122 employee workstations. Meanwhile, construction continues on the company's on-site production building, which is expanding to accommodate new press and bindery infrastructure, company officials said. The installation of a new Goss Pacesetter 2200 Saddlestitcher (beginning in March) and a Goss Sunday 2000 printing press (beginning in May) will nearly double the facility's output capacity. The renovation is expected to be finished in June.
As for the Cyber Center, "The main square footage for this building will be designated as office space for our sales representatives for AuctionTime, RentalYard, NeedAHauler.com, NeedALender.com, and FleetEvaluator.com," Sandhills' Chief Administration Officer Nancy Paasch said.
"Due to the large amount of growth we are expecting in the next few years, we will quickly need additional office space. Our human resources staff will also have space in the new building for increased recruitment efforts to keep staffing numbers in line with forecasted growth," she added.
Adjacent to Sandhills' Data Center and the recently constructed Binary Building, the Cyber Center will be the third LEED certified facility on the campus, and signals the company's continued commitment to investing in technologies and facilities that reduce its carbon footprint. "It is important to Sandhills to continue to practice environmental stewardship," explains Nancy. "Being efficient with the resources we use supports a better environment for the community today, as well as in the future."
