Arlington, VA –October 13, 2015 – Gilbane Building Company, a global leader in construction services, was awarded the Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU) Headquarters Campus Expansion Project, designed by J3 Design Collective, in April of 2015 and is getting ready to break ground this fall. This expansion of Navy Federal Credit Union’s current campus includes a 235,000 SF office complex, an 1,100-car attached parking structure and a pedestrian bridge connecting the new structures to the existing campus. This expansion is expected to add 600 new jobs to Navy Federal Credit Union in Fairfax County.
“Gilbane is truly excited to have the opportunity to work with a client in Navy Federal Credit Union that values high standards of quality, service and integrity,” said Drew Mucci, Vice President at Gilbane Building Company. He added, “We worked diligently to deliver a plan that would provide creative solutions to some of their most pressing logistical challenges.”

The company’s Good Neighbor Policy will include provisions such as working with Navy Federal to notify neighboring communities of any temporary road closures, schedule milestones and safety precautions.
