Weirton Area Port Authority

As a Founding Member of the Weirton Area Port Authority (WAPA), MeridianHD principals served in the capacity of functional design, business development, and investor recruitment.  The Purpose of the Weirton Area Port Authority, Inc. (the “Corporation”) was to develop and operate resilient communications and transportation systems at a local port in Weirton, West Virginia.  WAPA served multiple missions within the area:  to facilitate security and safety, promote economic development, and establish sustainable job creation solely for the common good and general welfare of the Weirton Area Port District community. Moreover, the development concept was to improve access to national and international markets for West Virginia businesses and improve tourism by providing recreational infrastructure on inland waterways.

The Watergate Hotel

Team principals worked with Grunley Construction who was commissioned and charged to complete the renovation of the 277,000-square-foot historic establishment, The Watergate Hotel. The project entailed an impressive renovation of the Hotel function within the five buildings that make up the Watergate Complex listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Grunley renovation was a collaborative effort of numerous construction disciplines including, but not limited to: demolishing and fitting out the interior of the 13-story, unoccupied building; repairing and replacement of the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems; refurbishing the amenities within the new five-star, 348-room Hotel outfitted with two restaurants (one with a terrace), two ballrooms with substantial structural work, a rooftop lounge, and five new large terraces; and, for its support part, Meridian principals provided Project Management of the low voltage requirements focused on the renovation’s Security and Audio Visual component requirements throughout the Hotel.

Veterans Affairs Medical Center

As with other construction charges, Company principals provided low-voltage support.  In this particular build-out, however, the Company also was tasked with providing telecommunications support that entailed the cabling, communications patching, and installation of the 1,200 Hospital NEC SV 9500 and UM8700 Multi-line telephones designated for the staff and administration.  This assignment was mission-critical to ensure the early success of the facility as it begins to serve the thousands of Veterans in the Charlotte area.

Department of Commerce

Facilities modernization including Project Management support function for the low voltage Audio Visual and Video-teleconferencing aspect of the Open Office Concept initiative and worked with its primes (Grunley, RTKL, and Hard Light Consulting) to deliver the integration of over 40 collaboration systems that provide the Department of Commerce with a modern work environment for the DOC’s 3,200 employees. The system included automated conference room controls for the video displays, sound systems, and video conferencing systems located in the collaborative spaces. The system also includes an enterprise room scheduling system, which is integrated with the DOC’s Outlook and Gmail Calendar systems.
