New Building. New Era.
This is a big year for Intelsat. Not just because it’s the 50th anniversary of our company’s founding in 1964. And not just because we have several of our next-generation Intelsat EpicNG satellites under construction. This is the year that we move our U.S. administrative headquarters to a new building in Tysons Corner, Va.
This week, Intelsat relocated from an iconic building at 3400 International Drive, Northwest in Washington, D.C. to a new construction in Virginia’s booming tech corridor. Called Tysons Tower, and located at the intersection of the Capital Beltway and Route 123, the new building is among the tallest in the area. Intelsat occupies the top several floors, from which employees and guests enjoy panoramic views of the National Capital region.
The new space is cutting-edge and contemporary by every standard. Featuring an open, architecturally inspired floor plan and office automation technology from SMART boards to air media, the new environment emphasizes Intelsat’s innovativeness and encourages collaboration among team members.
Visitors to the office experience a virtual window into space in an animated video wall that illustrates Intelsat’s huge fleet of satellites in orbit around the earth. For a view into how we operate our satellites – plus the dozens that Intelsat flies for other companies – simply step over to a two-story observation overlook into the control center.
It’s a new era for Intelsat as we make the move to Tysons and embark on the next 50 years.
