Upgraded environment will provide platform for collaboration, agility, and growth

CHANTILLY, Va., Sept. 20, 2013 — Citizant, a leading provider of IT management consulting and enterprise software solutions to the U.S. government, announced that it will move its headquarters office to the Washington Technology Park building in the Chantilly, Va. Westfields office park.

Citizant signed a long-term lease for more than 18,000 square feet in the building at 15000 Conference Center Drive, which is owned by Corporate Office Properties Trust (NYSE: OFC).  The company did not disclose other terms of the lease. Steve Hubberman and Chris O’Brien at Serten Advisors served as Citizant’s real estate advisors during the year-long search for new office space.

Alba M. Alemán, CEO of Citizant, said, “All of Citizant’s employees are driven to help our federal government customers work smarter and leaner. These new offices will provide a more modern, efficient, effective, and flexible environment in which to do this important work. All members of our team have worked responsibly to produce an excellent agreement with COPT that benefits Citizant’s employees and stakeholders and sets the stage for a positive, long-term leasing relationship.”

OTJ Architects and KGO Project Management are partnering to design the space and manage the buildout and move. DFS Construction Corporation has been selected as the project’s general contractor. Construction has already begun on the new offices, which Citizant will occupy in November.
