Centex Announces New Project Award -- BDM Headquarters Complex.
This project features a 323,417 square-foot, 12-story headquarters building for BDM International, Inc. (BDM), a Northern Virginia-based multi-national information technology company. Boston Properties, Inc. and Westbrook Communities form the development team for the project, which is located on a 15-acre site at the corner of Reston Parkway and Sunset Hills Road. The project is just one block from Reston Town Center, with visibility from the Dulles Airport Access Road.
The BDM Headquarters Complex, designed by Evans Heintges Architects of New York City, with Davis Carter Scott of McLean, Virginia as the Architect of Record, also includes a 133,093 square-foot, six-story speculative office building and a 332,328 square-foot, four-level parking garage. The BDM headquarters building, with the capacity to accommodate more than 1,000 employees, will have a structural concrete frame with an architectural precast concrete and curtainwall skin. The speculative office building and parking deck will also be constructed of structural concrete with a similar exterior skin. Both of these office buildings will be served by the 1,000-space parking garage and additional surface parking.
"The BDM Headquarters Complex is an extremely important project to Centex Construction Company," says John P. Tarpey, President and CEO of Centex's Washington Division. He adds, "We have been providing preconstruction services on this project for months, and are excited about winning the contract and continuing our work with Boston Properties and Westbrook Communities."
