Columbia, MD. March, 2019 /QuidientNewsWire/
Quidient announces the opening of its new technology center in Columbia, Maryland. In its 2016 article entitled Best Places to Live, Money Magazine named Columbia ‘the ultimate hometown in America.”
Team members working at the Tech Center will have reasonable commutes from parts of Washington D.C., MD; Annapolis, MD; Baltimore, MD and the rolling countryside surrounding Columbia. Michael Sullivan, Managing Director of JLL, points out, “Columbia has the talent pool needed to facilitate Quidient’s growth path. The schools are great, housing options are abundant, amenities are close by and there is plenty of open space to support thriving, diverse communities.”
The region around Columbia is home to such high-technology organizations as Johns Hopkins Advanced Physics Laboratory, Fort Meade (NSA, U.S. Cyber Command), NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and the Army Research Laboratory. Two top universities are close by (Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland).
The 2500+ square foot center will be in CIRQL2 located at 7142 Columbia Gateway Drive. CIRQL2 is an innovative space supported by Corporate Office Properties Trust (COPT). The building has an inviting design, bike share stations, open kitchen, and both conference and huddle rooms. A CIRQL2 community manager will host events for Quidient and other tenants such as book clubs and yoga
A flexibly modular layout and use of space is a key design driver for Quidient, combining realistic workspace privacy inside the open office concept. This center is the hub for Quidient operations including the main light laboratory for development and testing of our Scene Reconstruction Engines (SREs).
