Gilbane Celebrates “Topping-Out” at Navy Federal Credit Union Headquarters
Gilbane Building Company, a family-owned company since 1873, caps off the next stage of the $88 million Navy Federal Credit Union headquarters expansion.
Arlington, VA – December 21, 2016 – Gilbane Building Company, a national leader in construction services, is celebrating a major milestone at the site of the Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU) Headquarters in Vienna, VA. The expansion will add 600 jobs to the 3,500 jobs already provided by the current facility. It will include a pedestrian walkway connecting the new facility and parking garage with the existing campus. The project was designed by J3 Design Collective and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2017.
The parking structure will provide an additional 1,184 parking spaces to the NFCU campus and the office building will initially house about 600 employees, with full capacity at 1,100 people. When the office building is complete it will have an open-office floor plan and raised access floor system with the capability to re-arrange the floor and furniture layouts. This provides NFCU with flexibility based on their evolving needs. A green screen will also be installed on the open area portion of the parking garage to minimize disruptions to the residences and pedestrians along the W&OD trail.
“Gilbane is honored to be a part of the NFCU headquarters expansion, which will allow NFCU to continue to bring economic development to the region” said Drew Mucci, Sr. Vice President at Gilbane Building Company, “Growing to nearly 4,600 employees coming to the campus daily, the parking structure is an important aspect of this project. We are working to deliver the parking garage before the completion of the expansion to help alleviate parking issues.”
The ceremony was held at 11:30 a.m. on December 21, 2016. Participants included representatives from Navy Federal Credit Union, J3 Design Collective, Walter L. Phillips, Structural Concepts Inc., Williams Notaro Associates, Mark G. Anderson Company (MGAC) and prime contractor representatives.
