Adding to the growing number of companies moving their headquarters to Fairfax County is Bechtel, one of the largest engineering, construction and project management companies in the world. They will be relocating several hundred jobs from Frederick County, Maryland to Fairfax County. In moving what is considered their global operations headquarters to the Reston Town Center, Bechtel will bring 625 jobs and an $18 million investment to Fairfax, giving Virginia another company attracted to Fairfax County's business environment and its ability to attract the best work force to meet future growth needs.

"Gaining an international company like Bechtel Corporation is a huge coup for Virginia and Fairfax", said Gov. Robert McConnell (R).

Fairfax County is a ideal location because of its proximity to the District, the Dulles Technology Corridor and Reagan National and Dulles International Airports. Recently Northrop Grumman and Hilton chose Fairfax County for their headquarters, bring hundreds of jobs to Fairfax County and establishing Fairfax County as top choice for companies looking to relocate.

All of this adds up to the Northern Virginia/Washington DC Metropolitan Area as a great place to live, work and play. Now is the perfect oppportunity to consider investing in real estate with its record low interest rates and many opportunities for future growth.
