LOCKHEED MARTIN BREAKS GROUND ON NEW CHANTILLY FACILITY
CHANTILLY, VA., 04/10/2006 -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) held a ground-breaking ceremony today to mark the beginning of construction on its new office building in Chantilly. The new building, dubbed Stonegate II, will expand the company’s existing Chantilly operations in support of Intelligence Community and Department of Defense customers.
When complete, the 6-story, 145,000-square-foot building will house approximately 600 employees. Lockheed Martin’s Integrated Systems & Solutions business area will be the main occupant of the facility and will provide enterprise level integration related to Command, Control, Communications, Computing, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR). Work performed at the facility will include space and terrestrial communications, signals, systems engineering and analysis, modeling and simulation, and enterprise integration for Intelligence Community customers.
“The capabilities developed in this facility will enable the Intelligence Community and our military to quickly turn information into actionable intelligence,” said Bill Graham, Lockheed Martin Vice President for Systems Integration. “We also look forward to expanding our relationship with the local community as true corporate citizens as we continue to grow our presence in Fairfax County.”
In addition to office and laboratory space, the building will include a 220-seat auditorium, a cafeteria and conference rooms. The site is located in the Westfields Corporate Center, adjacent to Lockheed Martin’s existing Stonegate I facility on Conference Center Drive.
