Windward, a niche consultancy focused on helping its customers design, deploy, and manage both traditional and next generation global networks and data-centers, announces the relocation to a new office to accommodate the future expansion plans and growing demand for a more collaborative environment. The new office located at 2201 Cooperative Way, Herndon VA provides increased capacity and meets the need for cross departmental collaboration. The inspiration for the design of the space came from Windward’s core value of engagement, which translated, into lounges, huddle rooms, team neighborhoods, and café with a terrace that overlooks the Dulles Toll road.

“We wanted a space the reflected the company’s drive towards an engaged workforce,” said Sean McDermott, CEO and Founder of Windward. “For us that vision began with the concept of transparency. We wanted to remove barriers created by walls and really let creativity flow throughout the space. I believe that when people feel free they tend to mobilize and work with a broader spectrum of people. The move to the new space also aligns with our North Star which we are using as the guide for the future.”

“The entire construction project was a highly collaborative process from start to finish,” said HITT Contracting Project Manager Brian Lantz. “Through constant communication with Windward, FORM Architects, DTZ Construction Management, and HITT, we were able to deliver a high-quality, modern office space that supports Windward’s strategic expansion goals.”
