Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? A food court stocked with free food is just one of the perks for employees to enjoy at LinkedIn’s new Omaha office. There’s also a gym, walking trails, art and unique spaces designed to spark collaboration and innovation.
The world’s largest online professional network has come a long way since first opening its doors in Omaha in 2007 with just 11 employees.
New LinkedIn facility offers an innovative approach to work space
The 200,000-square-foot Complex, located at 132ndand Pacific Streets, is now LinkedIn’s fourth-largest work base in North America. Miller Electric’s work on the project began in October 2020 and wrapped up in November 2021.
“There were a number of neat aspects to the project,” says Adam Goodwin, low voltage general manager. “Meetup spots, creativity nooks, a music room and resting rooms are just a few features that stand out. They also have solar canopies in the parking lot that provide 13 percent of the building’s power.”
That’s just one of the features that contributed to the building being both Fitwell- and LEED Gold-certified.
The building also features “neighborhoods,” which are shared spaces employees can use to collaborate in groups or grab some focused time alone in a distraction-free workspace.
