KBR Plans Huntsville, Alabama, Headquarters & Operations Hub

Defense contractor KBR plans to expand its operations with a new headquarters facility in Huntsville, Alabama. The $65 project is expected to create 160 jobs.

KBR will consolidate its presence in Huntsville at two buildings being developed at Redstone Gateway by Corporate Office Properties Trust (COPT). The growth plans will allow KBR to retain its workforce of over 1,100 people in the city. The company executed two leases to occupy 90% of a 172,500-square-foot office building and roughly half of a 45,000-square-foot R&D facility.

“Recently named one of the ‘Best Places to Live in the U.S.,’ KBR is excited to enhance its presence in Huntsville, specifically at Redstone Gateway,” said Byron Bright, KBR Government Solutions president. “Whether we’re defending our nation or supporting the latest missions in space, we equip those on the frontline and those exploring a new frontier.

The company will provide engineering, scientific and technical services to the defense and aerospace industries at its new location just outside Redstone Arsenal, a sprawling government installation.

“With capabilities that truly span the globe and a culture of innovation and problem-solving, KBR stands out as one of the most impressive companies in its field,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “These qualities mean KBR shares the same kind of DNA as Huntsville, and I can think of no more perfect place for the company to execute its growth plans,” he added.

Houston-based KBR delivers a range of high-end services and expertise in systems engineering, data analytics and mission operations around the globe. Its in-depth portfolio spans defense modernization; military, civil and commercial space; intelligence; cyber; advanced logistics; and base operations.
