Guidehouse announced on Monday it is opening a new global headquarters operation at Tysons Corner in Fairfax County. The company plans to invest $12.7 million to develop the state-of-the-art location. The building project and headquarters are estimated to create over 1,000 jobs within three years and house more than 1,500 employees upon its opening in 2021.
“We are very excited to formally announce our new headquarters location in the heart of this vibrant business district in a fantastic location,” “We take pride in our role as a responsible corporate citizen are tremendously pleased to invest in and build a deeper rapport with the Fairfax County business community,” stated Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse and 2021 Wash100 Award recipient.
“The new space is designed with our employees in mind to be enjoyable, to foster collaboration and innovation, and allow our business ample room for continued growth, positioning Guidehouse for the future,” added McIntyre.
Guidehouse is one of the top consulting firms in the U.S. and is the largest company with equal scale in both public and private sector capabilities. The new headquarters at 1676 International Drive will help Guidehouse cope with its recent growth and increase demand for its services.
The company selected Fairfax County or its new headquarters because of the region’s quality healthcare, post-graduate academic institutions, strong public and private school advanced programs of learning for children and the county’s commitment to sustainability and environmental policy.
“Importantly, the building has been re-imagined to include an open-air conservatory and green spaces for outdoor gatherings that align well with Guidehouse office standards for a post-pandemic work environment,” said Charles Beard, Guidehouse’s chief operating officer.
“The proximity to fresh food dining options in the Boro, access to childcare, and commuting in a sustainable way are all important factors in supporting the wellbeing and creativity of our teammates and their families,” concluded Beard.
