This week, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) marked a significant milestone by having its first employees moved into the agency’s new 2.4 million square-foot campus at Fort Belvoir’s North Area in Springfield, Va. The move is the first deployment of NGA mission personnel to result from the consolidation of the agency’s facilities in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area to a single location due to 2005 Base Realignment and Closure requirements. The campus was purposely designed to facilitate greater collaboration both within NGA and with mission partners and customers supporting the geospatial intelligence mission around the world. The campus will accommodate 8,500 people while allowing for future growth. Be sure to check out our photo montage of New Campus East in this post.
