Weirton Area Port Authority
As a Founding Member of the Weirton Area Port Authority (WAPA), EPIC 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, 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 REFURBISHMENT
Team principals worked with Grunley Construction and completed the renovation of the 277,000-square-foot historic establishment, The Watergate Hotel. The renovation 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, EPIC 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 CONSTRUCTION BUILD-OUT
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.
