Employees of Science Applications International Corp. and its wholly owned subsidiary Eagan, McAllister Associates Inc. are consolidating into a new 64,800 square foot office in North Charleston from locations throughout the greater Charleston area.
A ribbon cutting ceremony for the building at 5617 North Rhett Avenue is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. today.
The facility will initially be home to approximately 275 employees from EMA and SAIC’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Information Technology Business Unit.
