(SFC) The PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (POCOG) has officially settled into their new headquarters.

The three-story building is located near the PyeongChang Olympic Plaza. The construction of the building started in November 2015 and was completed by POCOG domestic sponsor and LG Group affiliate, Serveone. It covers a total floor area of 10,408m to accommodate more than 700 employees and was built using the modular steel framing system.

Before the move, POCOG was operating out of split offices in PyeongChang and Seoul. This situation caused inefficiency as POCOG grew in size and it became essential for collaboration between the two offices. Now with the entire organization under one roof, POCOG expects streamlined internal communication, enhanced efficiency and teamwork.  

"It feels great to start working together in our new Headquarters.  I believe that answers to all issues are in the field, and since we are now working near the heart of the Games, POCOG will definitely become a stronger team," expressed POCOG Secretary General, Yeo Hyung-koo.
