WTOP, Washington D.C.'s premier news radio station, contacted OLS when their lease was coming to an end. Management knew there would be many complexities and challenges, and OLS was able to provide end-to-end project management that left WTOP's team satisfied that they could turn the space back over to the landlord and meet all end-of-lease obligations.
OLS removed all furniture and product from WTOP's headquarters in Washington, DC, in January of 2019. OLS decommissioned two data centers, known as the 'Glass-Enclosed Nerve Center' multiple broadcast studios, and all of the kitchens, which included properly handling, packaging, and storing sensitive electronics. OLS also expertly removed thousands of feet of cabling for their computers, phones, and security system. On the mechanical and industrial side, OLS also decommissioned two large HVAC units, an APC unit, roof-mounted satellite dishes, security cameras, and dry coolers. To cap off the project, OLS provided light-construction services and replaced doors, removed windows, drywall, and provided minor demolition of studios and IDF closets. Lastly, packaging moved and stored sensitive electronics that were to be distributed later.
OLS stored WTOP products for several months and then relocated all products to Cincinnati, OH, which brought the WTOP project to full completion.
