Stihl to Open New $25M Administrative Facility in Virginia Beach
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. — Stihl Inc., a Virginia Beach-based manufacturer of handheld outdoor power equipment, has celebrated the groundbreaking of its new $25 million, 80,000-square-foot office building in Virginia Beach. The company is the U.S. operations arm for German parent company Stihl Group. The property is located at the site of the company’s existing headquarters, which totals more than 1 million square feet. Hourigan Construction is the general contractor for the project, and HBA Architecture Interior Design is the lead architect. Creative Development Partners (CDP) is representing Stihl as the owner’s representative. The new administration space will include a Stihl museum and customer welcome center. In addition, the project will include improvements to an outdoor demonstration area for hands-on training, enhancements to the entry guardhouse and updates to traffic flow and security at the main gate. The expansion will replace the former 21,000-square-foot administration building, which was razed to make way for the new facility. The new building and other campus improvements are slated for completion in mid-2019.
