HGA Renovates Salvation Army Headquarters to Support Organization’s Mission

ALEXANDRIA, VA — HGA announces the completion of the renovation of The Salvation Army’s (TSA) National Headquarters in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. The 40,000-square-foot headquarters, originally designed by HGA in the 1980s, was in need of an interior refresh and modern advancements to more effectively support the organization’s mission and efforts.

“Our goal with the project was to redesign and enhance the lobby to better tell The Salvation Army story to anyone entering the building by making it more of a museum experience,” said Ben Webne, Principal at HGA. “We also updated the workspace to better motivate and inspire the critical people who support the Salvation Army’s mission every day whether they work in finance, internet fundraising, advocacy, or other functions.”

The redesign created a community-centered workspace with enhanced communication channels that utilize video monitors, photography, and interactive displays to tell the story of The Salvation Army’s 156-year-old mission. The project also connected the headquarters’ two buildings with a skybridge to enhance accessibility and flow. Additionally, doors, windows, elevators, staircases and cubicles, were modernized for security and functionality, and the onsite chapel was renovated for use by the community and staff.

“HGA’s new design helps bring our community closer together and tell The Salvation Army’s powerful story,” said Lt. Colonel Cindy Foley, National Treasurer and Secretary for Business Administration at TSA. “The building is now a place where employees and guests alike can be educated and inspired to meet the spiritual and physical needs of more than 30 million people in the United States, and more around the world, each year.”
