Census Bureau Headquarters

The Census Bureau's new headquarters building officially opened on August 7, 2006, when employees of the Geography Division, who had worked at a satellite facility in nearby Forestville, MD, moved into their office space. At that time, only half of the building was completed. As construction continued, more Census Bureau employees moved into their new office spaces on a weekly basis until April 2007.

The Census Bureau's new headquarters is a state-of-the-art workplace whose elegant and efficient design has received widespread praise. The building has won the GSA Design Excellence Award and has achieved a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design silver rating.
