When Safe Software launched in 1993, the company’s first cramped office in Surrey, B.C.’s Newton neighbourhood had no windows.
The firm’s second office, while a step up from its original digs, often smelled like the nearby fibreglass factory, joked Don Murray, who is co-founder and president of the enterprise systems and data automation program maker.
But now the burgeoning company of 150, which has topped 20,000 customers in more than 100 countries, is moving up and into the top section of City Centre 2 (CC2), the second-phase building in Surrey’s ambitious Health and Technology District.

The recently completed CC2 building by Surrey-based Lark Group sits next to Surrey Memorial Hospital at the south end of Surrey City Centre.
Murray was among a group of about 200 stakeholders and guests at the CC2 launch ceremony May 10 in a large, yet unfinished third-floor office space in the 12-storey building at 9639 137A Street.
