Safety National held a groundbreaking ceremony today for a 145,000 square foot expansion to their corporate headquarters at 1832 Schuetz Road in Maryland Heights, MO.
The additional office space will house the organization’s learning and operations functions, which will include new offices, workstations and meeting space in addition to a professional development center.
“The new building addresses our recent growth over the past decade and prepares us for projected future organizational development,” said Duane Hercules, President of Safety National. “We planned for this expansion as phase two of our 2004 original home office construction project master plan and, with nearly triple the employee base since then, we finally have the need to proceed with the project.”
Members of Safety National’s executive management team led the groundbreaking ceremony, joined by employees and expansion project partners Gershman Commercial Real Estate, ACI Boland and PARIC. Mayor Mike Moeller, City Administrator Jim Krischke and several other dignitaries from the City of Maryland Heights were also in attendance.
“This headquarters expansion is a true culmination of our corporate vision to be first with clients, co-workers and community,” said Mark Wilhelm, CEO of Safety National. “It provides the space and resources for Safety National to continue its steady, responsible business growth, enables our ability to attract the best talent as an employer of choice and renews the company’s strong commitment to our local community.”
Construction is projected for completion in 2021.
