Waterloo Greenway Conservancy, housed at the historic Symphony Square in Austin, Texas, is a collection of three historic buildings and an outdoor amphitheater on Waller Creek. Redesigned in 1971 to serve as the headquarters of the Austin Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Square was originally formed by four historic buildings: the Jeremiah Hamilton House, the New Orleans Club, the William P. Hardeman House, and the Michael Doyle House. In 2018, Waterloo Greenway Conservancy, a non-profit organization working to rehabilitate and develop the area along Waller Creek in downtown Austin, completed a comprehensive restoration of three buildings: New Orleans Club, Pavilion, and Hardeman House, all of which serve as the headquarters for the organization and the center for development along the creek.
Werd was contracted to update the networking infrastructure for the entire property across all three buildings and update the audiovisual system to allow for office use, event production, and private rental use. Werd worked closely with WGC and the general contractor, Formed LLC, to develop an effective infrastructure that provided a stable, reliable office network system for the organization, while also taking special care to preserve these historic buildings and minimize the overall footprint of the system.
WHAT WE DID.
Scope - Designed and executed on delivering a multi-faceted AV solution for daily office use, as well as self-hosted and private events.
Technical Design - Created a site-wide, multi-zone AV system to provide the ability to hold video conferences, play music, amplify presentations, and maximize total flexibility by instituting independent AV controls per building. Additionally, Werd implemented a seamless networking infrastructure that included multiple VLANs, and more than 8000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor WiFi coverage.
Programming - System integrations, management, system tuning, and controller set up.
