New Digital Hub in Charleston
- May 12, 2017
Booz Allen Hamilton, a management consulting and technology firm based in Virginia, expanded its Berkeley County operations by opening a new digital hub that will support its Digital Solutions team. Booz Allen Hamilton’s 75,000-square-foot facility in Charleston, S.C., will support clients such as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Navy. The roughly $10 million capital investment will create more than 90 new jobs.
Located at 2387 Clements Ferry Road, Booz Allen Hamilton’s new facility emcompasses more than 30,000 square feet of office and lab space, as well as previously acquired warehouse space in North Charleston, S.C., that primarily supports the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic.
Booz Allen Hamilton provides management and technology consulting and engineering services to leading Fortune 500 corporations, governments and non-profits worldwide. At its newly expanded Charleston Digital Hub, the firm expects to expand from 310 to 400 employees by the end of 2017. Hiring for the new positions is already underway.
“Within Digital Solutions, we are integrating emerging technologies, a deep understanding of our clients’ missions and more than 100 years of consulting heritage to drive technology modernization and support user adoption. The SPARC acquisition advances our digital growth strategy by expanding the scale of our services to support our clients’ demand for transformative technology,” said Booz Allen Hamilton Executive Vice President & Leader of Digital Solutions Gary Labovich, in prepared remarks.
Booz Allen’s Digital Solutions work includes the creation of an optimized website with an automated online assistant for the Department of Defense Federal Voting Assistance Program that helps approximately 150,000 military members deployed to more than 150 countries worldwide to vote in federal elections.
“The facility will represent an R&D space that will allow us to build, test and refine enterprise software solutions alongside our clients,” said Booz Allen Hamilton Charleston Vice President Elizabeth Buske.
Agracil Inc. and Frampton Construction provided development and general contractor services, and McMillan Pazdan Smith served as the primary architect of the new space. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to this project.
