The new CFC headquarters building in Dulles, Virginia, opened in September 2011, and was designed with the unique needs of CFC’s members in mind. The cost-effective, state-of-the-art facility pairs traditional elements of Virginia architecture—drawing on Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello for inspiration—with a sleek and contemporary style. The focal point of CFC’s headquarters building is its 75-foot-high atrium. The space serves as a crossroads for the facility, equivalent to CFC’s Main Street. A reflective Energy Smart Roof membrane covers more than 75 percent of the facility’s roof. The membrane reduces heat absorption into the building and decreases the “heat island” effect on the facility’s surroundings.
