Seattle-based management and tech consultancy Slalom has announced the relocation of its Houston office to a larger space at the CityCentre development in the Memorial City district.

The fast-growing consultancy will more than double its office footprint, occupying a 25,000 square foot floor at CityCentre 5. The new location will house the firm’s consulting business as well as Slalom Build – an engineering hub which co-creates technology products with clients. Slalom has build centers in eight US cities, as well as one in Toronto, Canada.

"Our new space is a reflection of our growth and continued investment in the Houston community," said Brian Jacobsen, general manager, Slalom Houston. "With more than 200 employees in Houston – and plans to grow beyond 400 over the next 24 months – we needed a space that accommodates our clients, partners, and team members."

The ambitious plan to double its Houston employee count by 2022 means Slalom is currently recruiting consultants in the Texas city. The company has used strong organic growth to expand to an employee base of 7,500 professionals since its founding in 2001.

The new office at CityCentre – which is located at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Beltway 8 – includes large collaboration rooms, project-based workspaces, and flex space for events.

"Our ambitious growth goals coupled with our commitment to a local business model meant we needed an exciting workspace that can draw top talent to live and work in the Houston area. We were thrilled to find a space that met our criteria for location, growth, flexible use, and culture and we are eager to start showing off our new home," added Jacobsen.

Early in 2019, the company relocated its 700-person Chicago team to an expanded space in Aon Center. The company plans to expand its Chicago staff to 1,000 by the end of 2021.

In October, Slalom expanded into Florida with a Miami office, and plans to open additional locations in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Jacksonville, and Orlando in the next two years, with a staff base of 600 people.
