Benefitfocus, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software solutions, broke ground on Tuesday on a building project that will expand the size of its technology campus on Daniel Island from 13 acres to 40 acres. In conjunction with the ground-breaking cermemony, Benefitfocus announced the anticipated creation of 1,200 new, high-tech jobs in South Carolina.  
“We are creating a community within a community, and it’s exciting to see this expanded technology campus come to life,” said Shawn Jenkins, president and CEO of Benefitfocus. “We are committed to the Charleston community and to our Daniel Island neighbors especially. Our passion for design and engineering is such a powerful part of what makes Benefitfocus great, and we believe the new campus will add to the vitality of the region as we continue to attract world-class engineering talent.”
The campus expansion will triple the size of the current Benefitfocus headquarters to nearly 500,000 square feet. Abundant wide walking paths, cart paths, and trails will provide interconnectivity between the five buildings creating a “campus” style, community-friendly environment for Benefitfocus associates. The additional space will allow for extensive recruitment and increase capacity for approximately 1,200 additional associates as the company continues to grow.
The next building on the campus will be a 145,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Customer Success Center. This new facility will house the growing base of customer implementation and service associates. Reflecting one of the company’s core values of “Providing Anticipatory Service,” the Customer Success Center will also be home to the new training and certification programs for associates, customers, and ecosystem partners. The new facility is expected to be complete and operational in the first quarter of 2015.
Founded in 2000 with a single office in Mount Pleasant, Benefitfocus moved to its Daniel Island campus in 2006. Last year, the company opened a state-of-the-art Design + Engineering building at the Daniel Island campus. The new campus expansion project is a reflection of the significant investment Benefitfocus is making to strengthen the technology industry in the greater Charleston region as well as the local Daniel Island community.
