Bechtel Corporation Relocating to Fairfax County

Bechtel Corporation, one of the world’s largest engineering, construction and project management companies, will relocate its Global Operations headquarters and other functions from Maryland to Fairfax County creating 625 new jobs in Virginia. The company, which already has operations in Fairfax, will lease 300,000 square feet between the One Reston Overlook and Two Reston Overlook buildings near Reston Town Center.

The move was facilitated by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership and made possible in part due to a $1.5 million grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Fairfax County with the project and $5 million in funds from the Virginia Economic Development Incentive Grant dedicated economic development projects with large numbers of employees and very high wages.

The Virginia Department of Business Assistance will support the company’s recruitment, training and retraining activities.
