Binary Pulse On the Move

After more than ten years in our current Costa Mesa location, Binary Pulse will be returning to Irvine at the end of October. Inspired by the need for new energy and new environs, we’ll be relocating to the Irvine Concourse campus right across from John Wayne Airport.

It’s been a long and thoughtfully considered (read as “painfully arduous”) process for the better part of 2010, but months and months of walking spaces has lead us to our new home. Centrally located in the heart of Orange County, the Irvine Concourse gives us the amenities and access we need to make our next decade as efficient and enjoyable as possible. While we’ll miss our current office, we’ll always be grateful for the lift it gave us when we moved in in August of 2000. (I know, I’m being sentimental over a building.)

There are still a lot of spinning plates, and we’ll undoubtedly be perfecting and polishing the new space for weeks after our move-in, but we believe the change will be invigorating. Just wanted to take the occasion here in Ones & Zeros to give you a heads up. Address and new contact info will be available to all shortly. (Pretty sure we got our new phone number this week.) 🙂

If you have any questions or decorating tips, your comments are always welcome.
