Curious timing on this little announcement by Bechtel...
Bechtel headquarters leaving San Francisco in favor of Virginia
Friday, June 8, 2018
Bechtel, the San Francisco-based engineering and construction behemoth, isn’t going to be based in San Francisco anymore. The company said on Thursday it was moving its headquarters to Reston, Va., near Washington, D.C., although it will maintain offices in San Francisco.
“Consolidating the corporate leadership and operations in Reston will enable the company to thrive in the current fast-paced business environment — one that demands faster and seamless decision-making, integration and collaboration,” said Jack Futcher, the company’s chief operating officer."
Congress approves winning bid this Thursday. Announcement comes Friday.
