Epic Systems Corp. is building two new office buildings as it looks to grow its workforce by 10% in 2023.
The two new buildings, named Creatures and Guilds, will become the sixth and seventh buildings on the Wizards Academy cluster at the Verona-based medical software company. The buildings, which will bring an additional 60,000 square feet of space and 700 private offices, are expected to open in 2024.
The Guilds building looks almost as if it were plucked out of the Harry Potter wizarding world, as the exterior design shows four distinct “houses” through different colors of stone, clay tiles and accents such as wood and metal panels. The theme for Creatures will evoke the sense that the building is home for magical creatures under its clay-tile barn roof with a “cottage” for the caretaker. A pond shaped like a witch’s hat is planned between them.
