Technology Firm Expands to Harleysville
New complex was built with energy efficiency in mind
Technotects, Inc., a software engineering and systems integration company, recently relocated its headquarters to a new state-of-the-art office building in Harleysville.
The company, which specializes in leading-edge web applications, has been in business for more than 15 years but is new to Harleysville.
“We’re excited to operate in such an idyllic setting,” said Michael Malone, vice president and principal of Technotects. “We decided to build here because it struck us as the perfect place to grow and nurture our business.”
The company has experienced rapid growth over the past few years, multiplying its resources even during times of national economic uncertainty. The firm started out as a three-person operation in 1996 and has since expanded to nearly 20 employees. Client loyalty plays a big part in this expansion.
“We’ve built and sustained long-term relationships with our clients, many of whom have been with us for more than 15 years,” Malone said. “We want to help them succeed and thrive, and they know we have the tools to deliver.”
The name Technotects is derived from the company’s strengths in technology and software architecture.
“Many of us have backgrounds in engineering as well as computer programming, which helps us devise scalable solutions to complex technology problems,” Malone said. “Our overarching goal is to be our clients’ technology architects,” Malone said.
Technotects’ new corporate complex, situated on a plot of lush greenery flanked by newly planted trees and rain gardens, was built with geothermal heating, cooling and energy efficiency in mind.
“We thought it was important to reduce our carbon footprint while enriching the local landscape,” Malone said. “Our commitment to our clients is mirrored in our commitment to the local community where we live and work.”
The complex, called Parkview Commons, boasts a shower facility to allow employees to bike or walk to work and lighting fixtures that shut off automatically when they don’t sense movement.
“It’s these little things that can add up to huge returns for our planet,” Malone said
Parkview Commons is located across the street from the Lower Salford Township Charles L. Reed Memorial Park. The complex currently features one two-story building with first-floor office suites available ranging from 1,200 to 6,000 square feet. The second two-story building, which will be completed in 2013, offers office suites ranging from 1,200 to 12,000 square feet.
Located a few minutes off the Turnpike at 140 Clemens Road, the owner-operated Class-A office buildings are professionally designed, styled with premium materials, and ADA- compliant with elevator service. Each office suite will be fully sprinklered and feature separate geo-thermal HVAC, metered electric service, security system, and fob door access.
