A fast-growing environmental consulting firm will soon have a new headquarters in downtown Fredericksburg.
Marstel-Day LLC in June plans to move its principal office to a pair of nearby buildings at the intersection of Wolfe and Prince Edward streets.
The firm last week leased a total of about 15,000 square feet at 417 Wolfe St. and 513 Prince Edward St., both of which are owned by Woodmere Associates, Ltd. About two-thirds of the space will be in the Prince Edward building.
The company will relocate there from its current roughly 8,900-square-foot headquarters in the George Washington Executive Center on Princess Anne Street. Marstel-Day employs about 60 people in Fredericksburg and another 60 at offices in Alexandria, California, Colorado, Texas and Mississippi.
Marstel-Day CEO Rebecca Rubin said the decision to move wasn’t easy, as the firm likes its current space. One of the primary benefits of the new, larger space, Rubin said, is its close proximity to the downtown train station, which will allow employees to avoid Interstate 95 when meeting with clients.
Other environmental-friendly attributes of the new space will include eco-friendly carpet and zero-VOC paint, bike racks and a dedicated outdoor space for plants and trees. The space also has an extensive IT infrastructure already in place, Rubin said.
