NEXCOM breaks ground for headquarters building expansion

The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) held a groundbreaking ceremony on Oct. 21 for a 33,000 sq. ft. addition to its headquarters building located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The $15 million nonappropriated fund construction project is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2016.

"When NEXCOM moved into its headquarters building in 1993, we had 380 associates," said Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi (Ret), NEXCOM's Chief Executive Officer. "Today, there are almost 1,000 NEXCOM associates in Hampton Roads and more than half work in our headquarters building."

The new addition allows NEXCOM to replace approximately 9,000 sq. ft. of aging trailers that had been in use for the last 10 years, create much needed conference and planogram rooms and address merchandising and information technology personnel space deficiencies. It also brings 125 NEXCOM associates from its Human Resources and Loss Prevention/Safety departments as well as the Navy Lodge Program into the headquarters building from other Hampton Roads office locations.

"This is the first step necessary in order to move our headquarters associates from leased space into Navy-owned space," said Bianchi. "This new addition will help us consolidate and align key headquarter codes for even greater command efficiency."

Congressman Scott Rigell, representative of Virginia's 2nd District, praised NEXCOM for the work it does to support military members and their families. "I respect the great work you are doing and the quality of life you offer to your customers," said Rigell. "As a businessman in a season of public service, I know that the quality of your surroundings affects the creativity and quality of work of your associates. This new building addition will definitely add to the quality of work you provide. I look forward to the opening of your new facility."

Will Sessoms, Virginia Beach Mayor, participated in the groundbreaking ceremony. "The work provided by NEXCOM is valued and appreciated by all military commands and especially military families," said Sessoms. "Your dedication and commitment to service are truly unmatched. NEXCOM gives military members and their families shopping experiences and prices that are so competitive that you are the envy of retailers everywhere." more
