The 20,000-square-foot building will have the capacity for 120-140 employees. Xpanxion’s current Kearney facility at 810 E. 56th St. has capacity for 75 employees. Once the Tech oNE building is complete, the entire Kearney operation will move there. No detail is spared to shape the space into a state-of-the-art facility where work and play collide . . . Plans for the technology park also include the construction of Nebraska’s largest solar energy array. Officials with Chicago-based SoCore Energy, Nebraska Public Power District and the city entered a 25-year agreement in February to build a 5.8 megawatt, $11 million solar array on 53 acres of the park. Construction for the solar array began in June. Read more here.
