Guilfoyle: New Building, New Business


Space: It's the one thing Guilfoyle just doesn't have enough of at its old building.

"That building was perfect for 30 employees, but with 130, it's a little small," said Jeff Call, Guilfoyle Director of Administration.

But once they move into Guilfoyle's new home in the old Covidien building in Watertown, space shouldn't be a problem.

"We'll have around 75,000 square feet of usable space for Guilfoyle," Call said.

And that 75,000 square feet of space in the new building will be home to more than EMTs and defibulators:

"Wedding receptions, meetings, group meetings, anniversaries, anything like that. We're going to have a full slate of rental options for anyone who wants to rent the building," Call explained.

The building has 30,000 square feet of rentable space, made up of classrooms and two reception halls.  And it can fit more than 1800 people, making it one of the biggest halls for rent in the North Country. 

"It's diversifying the building and using it to the maximum, and offering a space that is much needed in the area," Call said.

In addition, Guilfoyle plans on opening it's classes to everyone:

"CPR and first aid training for the public, for the community, fire fighters and EMTs throughout the county can come here and get some of that training that we do internally, we can open that up to the public now," explained Call.

Guilfoyle should be moving into its new space within the first two weeks of December.
