The Journey to Realtime's Grand Opening Celebration

After 21 years plus of growing our engineering business, and over a decade at our Madison west side location, we came to the realization that we were quickly running out of functional space.  With Realtime's employee growth expected to nearly double in the next 5-10 years, it was imperative that we find a larger facility, and soon! 

We are proud to share that on January 19th, 2015, Realtime opened its doors at the new office location in Fitchburg, WI, a suburb of Madison.  The actual move was accomplished in one weekend, with zero company downtime.  Many employees volunteering long hours, along with plenty of caffeine and pizza, helped make the weekend a success.

The Fitchburg office is centrally located in the Madison area, and provides easy access to the Beltline, the main route of transportation thru the City of Madison.  As Realtime grows to 200 plus employees, it brings a large professional services business to Fitchburg, WI.  The new location is in close proximity to local shopping, day care, fitness facilities, and is located on a beautiful bike path, promoting opportunities for healthy lifestyles.

Our new office incorporates an artistic and modern flair, into an open and bright interior with common work areas and a very large training center.  The training center is used to provide industry and safety training opportunities for both employees and guests.


The entire moving process, from signing the letter of intent for space, lease negotiations, furniture selection, designing the office space, construction, to the final move-in, was all accomplished within a six-month period.

On move-in day, employees were invited to the lobby entrance for a mid-morning art unveil, freshly baked cookies from Café Realtime, and a warm welcome speech to our new ‘home away from home,’ from Robert Strycharske, President.

Throughout the last five months we’ve settled into our new facility quite nicely.  Beautiful artwork and greenery have been arranged throughout the office, creating a welcoming environment.  We’ve also ordered additional office cubicles, as employee growth continues.    

The Day of the Grand Opening...

Our Grand Opening celebration was held on Wednesday, June 17th, and was an opportunity to welcome special guests such as local utilities, university representation, City of Fitchburg personnel, vendors, friends, and family members.  Employees and guests were able to socialize throughout the evening, enjoy interactive video presentations, office tours, refreshments, hor d' oeuvres, and all of the amenities our new facility has to offer.  The event was a complete success, with over 175 visitors throughout the evening.

Realtime is extremely appreciative and thankful for the support from Dashiell and Quanta Services.  We would also like to thank those that contributed to the success of this relocation.  This includes our vendors (Ruedebusch Development & Construction, Lerdahl Business Solutions, JLL, Advance Electrical/Voice Data, C. Coakley Relocation Systems, Elite AV & Automation, BPI Color, and Thysse Design), and very importantly, our valued employees.
If we missed you at this special event, we hope that this newsletter was successful to help capture and share the essence of this journey.  Thanks again to all of those that made this office relocation a success!
