Scorpion, one of the fastest growing website design and Internet marketing firms in North America serving legal, healthcare, franchise, and home service clients, broke ground today on their new corporate headquarters in the Santa Clarita Valley. Scorpion’s new headquarters will be the first creative office building of its kind in the area, and will prominently feature an environmentally conscious, employee-centric design.
Plans for the new headquarters revolve around the facilitation of employee wellness and innovation via large, open creative spaces, fitness center, natural lighting, indoor game centers, and a fully equipped dining facility. The company is also considering incorporating solar panels across their parking lot, electric car charging stations, and similar eco-friendly assets. Scorpion’s new headquarters will adhere to strict clean energy standards for a low environmental impact to benefit the local community, including plans to achieve LEED building certification.
“We believe focusing on the well-being and satisfaction of our employees directly translates to the well-being and happiness of our customers, and that’s behind the design for the new building,” said Scorpion CEO and founder Rustin Kretz. “We choose Santa Clarita Valley as our permanent home because our employees live and thrive here, and we see it developing into the epicenter of a tech hub that spreads across Los Angeles County.”
Scorpion and its development partners are working closely to meet a Q3 2017 completion date. “Scorpion’s plans to expand in Santa Clarita will further solidify our city as an up-and-coming informational technologies center,” remarked Holly Schroeder, President and CEO of the SCV Economic Development Corporation. "The growing number of firms that are choosing to locate their corporate headquarters in our region is a testimony to the SCV's business-friendly environment and unmatched quality of life," Schroeder added.
