Ikhana Sets up Roots at Navy Yard, Continues to Grow
Ikhana Intelligent Design & Construction, located at 10 Storehouse Row at the Navy Yard at Noisette is a design-build construction and engineering company that is quickly becoming recognized as an industry leader. I recently had a chance to sit down and talk with their management team and the future looks bright for Ikhana. We are pleased they have decided to call the Navy Yard home.
Ikhana employs a top-notch team of industry professionals spanning the areas of construction/project management, engineering, design, architecture, and related consulting services. Current and recent projects include mainly federal related complexes but additional work in the environmental services/remediation and historical structures fields will ensure a wider diversity of services for their clients. A sample of previous clients include the Air National Guard, US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Air Force, the US Army, and the US Marine Corps at locations all over the Southeastern United States and beyond. Their focus on Whole Building Design through integrated design approach and an integrated team process is a deviation from the typical planning and design process, further separating them from their competition.
Ikhana moved its headquarters to the Navy Yard in early 2011 as the firm saw its employee count jump from 3 to 12 over the last several years. The company is poised to expand and grow its team once again as the business environment continues to improve. Expansion will initially continue to take place here at the Navy Yard but long-term plans call for opening multiple satellite offices. Robert Pickard, Director of Business Development for Ikhana points to the growing business district presence at the Navy Yard, particularly in the architecture, engineering and construction fields as a factor in locating and growing their business at the Navy Yard at Noisette. The unique arts and creative culture found at the “Yard” and specifically at 10 Storehouse Row “lends itself to creative thinking and working,” Pickard stated. Pickard also points to the wide variety of artists, marketing firms, digital/graphic design companies, and architecture firms located in the same historic yet modern office building as their headquarters that help to create a special work environment. The Navy Yard at Noisette is proud to associate itself with Ikhana and we look forward to watching their continued success.
