The New Office

April 2007

In a few months our company will start moving out to its new offices. It is a big company so the move will be staggered over about four months. Our group will be moving in September.

I recently did a page on the current office. This page is to get an idea of the new one. You can arrange tours of the site which I have not yet done but a co-worker has and these are her photographs. She is in no way responsible for the commentary.

The grounds have some particularly pleasant outlooks like the above. I'm sure the radio-controlled boat club will be holding regattas at least once a week and possibly a few naval battles as well.

The basketball court looks good although it could get a trifle crowded if everyone wants to play at once. I wonder what the world record for the number of people on a basketball court might be?

As we move inside, reality shifts a little and we are suddenly in a science fiction movie.

Is it just me, or does this look like the entrance to the Gattaca Corporation?

The reception desk is specially lit for alien clients who are happier in infra-red. A little harder to place but I think possibly Doctor Who?

Past the facades we have grey workstations in grey rooms with grey carpets. I am seriously hoping that this is because they haven't finished decorating yet.

Or maybe we are continuing the science-fiction theme via an old black-and-white horror movie. Where's Bela Lugosi when you need him?
