Hi everyone!I can’t tell you (but I’ll try!) how excited we are at Devolutions right now. After looking forward to this moment for months, we’re finally ready to move into our brand new office this week!
The Golf CourseAs for how we found our happy new home, it’s a bit of a strange story. Here’s the short version: Lavaltrie once had a golf course that was sold to a real estate promoter a few years ago. The golf course doesn't exist anymore, but the clubhouse is still there.
We’d been searching for about six months to find a new space, and when we came across the clubhouse we immediately felt that it was perfect for us. There’s a lot of space, and the building design itself is ideal for an “open concept” software company like ours, which promotes collaboration and interaction. Plus, there’s plenty of space around us to welcome other technology businesses. We truly believe that we can create a kind of mini-Silicon Valley here with some of our friends currently based in the greater Montreal area.
At the moment, our new office is still partly under construction, as we’re making some improvements. Eventually, the plan is to use the basement for the gym (it’s currently on the second floor), the first floor for the entire development team, and the second floor for administration, sales and marketing. And of course, there’s also a conference room, kitchen, server room, game room (football tables, oh yeah!), and a really cool patio to cool off during summer.
