SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT (JUNE 1, 2022) – Construction Management firm ReArch Company celebrates the launch of global industrial computer hardware manufacturer and solution provider, OnLogic’s new $60 Million, 140,000 square-foot global headquarters at Technology Park, in South Burlington Vermont.
Governor Phil Scott and Congressman Peter Welch joined members of the OnLogic and ReArch Company team, officials from the City of South Burlington, and representatives from Wiemann Lamphere Architects, VHB, and the Associated Builders and Contractors NH/VT for the groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday.
The groundbreaking featured the use of virtual reality technology. ReArch worked closely with Wiemann Lamphere Architects’ building model to offer guests Virtual Reality Experiences. Which included virtual reality tours of the new headquarters through Virtual Reality Goggles, and 360-degree views of the building from their mobile devices through scannable QR Codes throughout the job site.
The state-of-the-art facility will provide space for OnLogic’s more than 150 Vermont-based employees to effectively collaborate and innovate. The company estimates that the new facility will be able to fully accommodate their planned growth in Vermont for the next 7-10 years. The company has grown at an average of 30% annually, with a global revenue of $110M in 2021.
Development of the new space has focused on sustainability, energy efficiency and community connectivity, with an anticipated construction completion date near the end of 2023.
The project includes:
- 640 kw Roof-mounted solar array, which is expected to cover the majority of the project’s HVAC load and offset the equivalent of 60 homes per year
- A geothermal mechanical system which, when compared to a code compliant conventional HVAC system, will save approximately 1,574,308 lbs of CO2 per year
- 24 Level 2 Electric Vehicle Chargers for use by the OnLogic team
- Full building automation system designed to minimize energy usage
- Responds in real-time to building use and grid needs (peak shaving-capable)
- Custom built in partnership with OnLogic engineers and designers
- Foam Glass Gravel sub-slab insulation by Glavel Inc., locally sourced from Essex, VT will result in an 87% reduction in Carbon compared to traditional rigid insulation
The relocation of OnLogic’s team will also help support existing Technology Park businesses, including Kestrel Coffee Roasters, Planet Fitness, and Kid Logic Learning.
“This expansion is a clear sign of what a global leader this company is, and I look forward to seeing how much more [they] can do once this facility is opened and operational,” said Governor Phil Scott. “The fact is that the growth of a business like OnLogic has so many benefits. Innovative businesses, and the growing tech sector, [are] putting us on the map globally, and OnLogic is a big part of that.”
The new facility will allow OnLogic to meet the ever-growing demand for the company’s small, highly customizable computers designed for use in industrial environments. OnLogic systems are engineered to stand up to conditions that could damage, or destroy, consumer grade computing equipment. The company’s customers span across businesses of all sizes, including some of the largest and most well-known companies in the world. OnLogic hardware users create innovations in manufacturing technology, smart agriculture, smart cities, energy management and the Industrial Internet of Things.
