Bossier City, La.—IT services company CSRA Inc. has announced the opening of its Integrated Technology Center in Bossier City, La., marking the completion of a two-year development. As reported by Shreveport Times, the overall cost of the project was $39 million. The center will generate a total of 800 new jobs in northwest Louisiana by June 2018.

The new 96,000-square-foot facility will serve as a delivery center. CSRA broke ground on the new facility in September 2014. The property features interactive technology, collaborative work spaces and a large town hall with food service offerings from local partners.

CSRA’s professional workforce will now be moving into this next-generation facility that will securely and intelligently support so many vital operations of major federal customers, and we couldn’t be happier to have them in Louisiana. (…) It builds on our heritage with Barksdale Air Force Base and propels us into the future with great partnerships among state government, local government and Louisiana’s higher education campuses,”  John Edwards, governor of the State of Louisiana, said in prepared remarks.

The opening of the new facility falls in line with CSRA’s strategy to grow the company’s economic efforts in the area, following the recently opened Customer Engagement Center in Bossier City as well, which will create an additional 300 jobs.

The facility was built in collaboration with several state and local government organizations including the Louisiana Department of Economic Development, the State of Louisiana, the City of Bossier, the Cyber Innovation Center and the Bossier Parish Police Jury. Mike McSwain Architect LLC designed the building.
