Renovations are underway on Clark Construction’s massive new office at Tysons’ Silverline Center (7900 Westpark Drive).
The Bethesda-based construction firm announced today (Tuesday) that it will move into the center’s 12-story office tower this fall, the first public confirmation of an expansion plan that FFXnow previously reported in early March.
“Clark Construction has played an important role in infrastructure development for Fairfax County and the region,” Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeff McKay said in the news release. “Their projects have helped move our commuters along faster and strengthen our local businesses. We welcome them to Tysons and look forward to continuing this cooperative effort.”
Founded in 1906, Clark’s major projects in the county have included The Boro in Tysons, the Inova Schar Cancer Institute in Merrifield, the first skyscrapers at the Reston Town Center expansion, and improvements in the Route 28 corridor.
The company’s Tysons office will be 128,000 square feet in size and serve more than 550 employees, according to a zoning application currently under review by Fairfax County.
The application concerns proposed signage to advertise Clark’s presence at the Silverline Center. It’s scheduled to go before the county’s planning commission for a public hearing on Sept. 14.
“The new space is designed to provide a modern and collaborative hub for Clark’s infrastructure, building, and asset solutions teams along with many of Clark’s corporate departments that serve the company’s projects nationwide,” the company said.
The Tysons office will be Clark’s second in Fairfax County, joining an office owned by affiliate Shirley Contracting Company in Lorton. The company also has an office in Sterling for afflilate Clark Water, and it’s planning to add a location in Central Virginia to support projects in the Richmond area.
Clark also announced that it will maintain its corporate headquarters in Bethesda and double the size of an office in downtown Baltimore.
