View celebrates with Overstock.com at the New Peace Coliseum
Friday the 14th was a day of smiles and celebration in Salt Lake City, Utah. Overstock.com opened their stylish, new headquarters with a colorful ceremony and not a little fanfare.
View’s CEO, Rao Mulpuri, took part in the opening ceremony and demonstrated with his local sales team why View Dynamic Glass was chosen to be an integral part of the project. A day of celebration with Overstock employees and their families followed. It’s easy to see why everyone looked so happy.
This will be THE place to work in Salt Lake City, or as Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne said: it will be “..the coolest place to work in Utah.”
A variety of vendors set up stalls to show their wares and innovation, give away samples and prizes, and View was no different, using virtual reality to show the building’s new employees what they can expect when you throw away blinds and shades and embrace the stunning mountain views, without the heat and glare of course!
The three-story circular building looks like a peace sign from above, hence the name Peace Coliseum. The new Peace Coliseum will be a hive of activity as the headquarters of Overstock, but the beautiful design and amenities mean that employees feel a sense of wellness (the campus includes cafes featuring healthy food, a gym, a doctor-staffed health clinic and a daycare) and yes, a sense of peace. As View CEO, Rao Mulpuri commented “All 1,500 employees will enjoy beautiful views, no blinds! This is how buildings should be built.”
