Innovations in Transportation is celebrating the grand opening of its new North American Headquarters building located at 424 Network Station, Chesapeake, Virginia.
The grand opening ceremony includes a formal ribbon-cutting and guided tours of the 67,000 square foot facility, which was completed in June 2017 and cost approximately US$12.5M to build. The building is constructed on eight acres of land at the Oakbrooke Business and Technology Center.
The new facility has consolidated Init’s warehouses, operations, and two manufacturing firms - Total Quality Assembly (TQA), and Superior Quality Manufacturing (SQM). Altogether, the building features 20,000 square feet of manufacturing space, 20,000 sq.ft of office space and a 27,000 sq.ft warehouse.
The City of Chesapeake’s Economic Development Authority played a vital role in INIT‘s decision to build the new headquarters in Chesapeake, as well as the selection of land. Whiting-Turner Contracting Company of Chesapeake was chosen as the general contractor, with Tymoff+Moss Architects guiding the design of the building.
