Simplot HQ running slightly behind

The new headquarters building for the JR Simplot Company isn’t meeting its hoped-for early-October timeline to start moving employees in.

“Our initial tentative target date was early October and we’re holding pretty close to that,” Simplot communication manager Josh Jordan told BoiseDev.com “We expect to begin moving employees over the coming weeks. In order to ensure a seamless transition for our company, we are phasing our move into the new headquarters to ensure the least disruption for our clients and workforce.”

Construction on the combined JUMP/Simplot HQ project has been in progress for several years. JUMP held some open houses late last year and has started to host events – but portions of that facility still are not open. 

The Simplot building is massive – spanning to ten stories in spots, and includes a rooftop greenhouse, customer experience center, large outdoor video screen and room for employees previously housed in locations throughout Boise – including in the One Capital Center and a building off Federal Way.

Despite the small delay, Jordan says the company is happy with its contractor and progress on moving employees. It hopes to have everyone in place by early next year.
