Basin Electric Annual Meeting social offers glimpse of new Headquarters addition

More than 750 people attended Basin Electric’s Annual Meeting social held at the new Headquarters addition.

Attendees, consisting of Basin Electric members and other special guests, were able to get their first glimpse of the newly finished Headquarters West building. This new portion of the Headquarters complex will house 175 of Basin Electric’s 550 Headquarters employees. Before this addition, Headquarters employees were located in five different locations in Bismarck.

Reception attendees mingle in the Headquarters’ new Atrium. During the day, the Atrium, which connects the original building and the new Headquarters West building, serves as the social hub for employees.
