City Park in Charlotte, NC is home to one of the first Marriott dual brand properties. There are over 200 rooms and 2,250 sq. ft. of meeting space at the Fairfield Inn and Residence Inn. The hotel’s customers need powerful and reliable wireless internet, so they selected ASD® to handle their cabling and wireless infrastructure.

Challenge:

The dual brand hotel scheduled an opening date but extreme weather conditions delayed construction. There was still a lot of work to be done before the hotel could make its debut. By the time ASD® could begin sending in technicians it was getting down to the wire and it was up the project managers to keep the project on track.

Important Considerations:

  • How can project managers deliver the project on time considering the compressed time frame?
  • What are Marriott’s corporate standards for cable and high-speed internet access?

Solution:

To keep the project on schedule ASD® project managers meticulously managed the logistics and coordination between all of the different trades and stakeholders. They were able to get in and get the work done quickly and efficiently. The structured cable was run in both hotels and in the shared meeting rooms and exterior security cameras were mounted and installed in the parking lots.
