"Exclusive", "You won't see this anywhere else", "You saw it here first"
I always have a wry smile when one of the media outlets claim this, sometimes after every blogger in the city has covered it.
Well this time for once, I can claim all three thanks to an invite from dunnhumby to check out the progress on their headquarters on Race St between 5th and 6th. I've been watching the progress since day one as I pass the site every single day and I think they're about 14 months into construction. I got a first class tour from Project Manager Steve Verdin and tried to remember as much as possible of what he told me but there was a good deal of information to digest. I'm not an expert on any of this stuff, so feel free to chime in the comments to add to or correct anything I get wrong.
As Verdin covered details of the construction my head was spinning over the planning that has to go into these complex structures. Amazing.
Thanks to everyone at dunnhumby who made this tour happen for me.
