Benefitfocus, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software solutions expands its Daniel Island, SC technology campus.
Benefitfocus Corporate Headquarters & Data Center (143,500 SF)
Benefitfocus’ corporate headquarters in Charleston, SC makes way for two Class A office buildings totaling 143,498 SF. Each building is constructed of load bearing tilt-up concrete panels, structural steel, PO roofing, metal awnings, elevators, and aluminum storefronts. Raised access flooring allows the mechanical and electrical systems to sit beneath reconfigurable floor panels.
The high-tech office features conference and classroom areas with stadium-style flooring and seating. The building is equipped with a full-service kitchen and cafe, high-end bathrooms with showers, and a 14’x19’ data center supporting extensive IT operations. Office and kitchen areas are divided with glass panels to add to the open environment style and allows light to easily stream into the building. Due to the company’s extensive IT needs, a powerful generator is installed to continue operations in the event of power failure.
Benefitfocus Customer Success Center (145,800 SF)
Housing Benefitfocus’ growing base of customer implementation and service associates, the 145,000-SF Customer Success Center is also home to the new training and certification programs for associates, customers, and ecosystem partners.
The four-story structure includes 27 conference rooms, 47 “huddle” rooms, a café, and outdoor patio. Each area is enhanced with access flooring and modern furnishings and boasts abundant natural light to foster conversation and collaboration. The structure of the facility is comprised of 70’ high tilt wall panels on deep pile foundations with structural steel columns and beams. Because the site is located in a high seismic and hurricane zone, bracing is added to handle the seismic requirements.
