DURHAM, NC – November 2, 2016 – Measurement Incorporated® (MI®) recently announced its return to office space in Durham’s Northgate Mall in Suite 235.  The additional work space signals growth and expansion for the educational assessment firm founded in Durham more than 30 years ago.

The new 20,750 square foot location adjoins the first floor of Sears and provides ample room for a team of employees focused on reading and scoring written portions of educational and corporate assessments. The new space also comes with abundant parking and interior and exterior mall entrances.

Previously, in 1981, MI inhabited 12,000 square feet of office space in Northgate’s lower level center for over 15 years, so this move signals a return to old stomping grounds and serves to bring new business and traffic into the mall.
