Anchor Movin’ On Out!

By October 28, 2013Company News

It’s an exciting time at Anchor as another big move is in the works. We moved to the current premises at 230 Clarence about 3 years ago now. At the time we thought it was huge and had boundless plains to share, but strong business and steady recruitment has seen us grow to about fifty staff now!

The exact date for the move isn’t fixed yet, but we’re prepping for the convoy to set sail sometime in late November. The destination? A few blocks east, just across the road from Hyde Park, and a substantial jump in elevation.

In the meantime we’ve been doing a bit of spring cleaning, we’re getting rid of anything that we don’t need to take with us. The amount of stuff we’ve got lying around is mind-boggling, we should do this more often.

We piled everything in the foyer, in true Council Cleanup style. This is just one third of all the junk we pulled out - there's two more similar piles at the far end of the room!

Crate o' drives. We put 9mm holes through them to make them more aerodynamic and to improve cooling airflow. Use of JHP offers a good compromise between going through cleanly without throwing swarf everywhere.

Our network crew also recently got access to the new premises to scope out connectivity and wiring. We can manage a couple of PoE-enabled ports to every desk, and pending an inspection of the building’s MDF we should have access to fibre optic connectivity. Things are looking good!
