MCW Solutions and WeWork Take 'Working from Home' to a Whole New Level
MCW helps launch Phase 1 of WeWork co-living experiment, WeLive.
ASHBURN, Va., April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MCW Solutions (MCW), a leading technology systems integrator, has successfully completed the audiovisual, security and teledata for phase one of WeWork's co-living brand--WeLive--in Crystal City, Virginia. Although almost a year in the making for MCW, WeLive has been the growing brainchild of WeWork founders, Miguel McKelvey and Adam Neumann, since the beginning.
"Phase 1 of WeLive: Crystal City has successfully launched thanks to [the MCW] team," said Mark Bardolf, head IT engineer on the Crystal City project. "Members are moving in and already love what [MCW has] done. It was so great to execute the beginning of this plan alongside the best minds in the business."
The WeLive venture applies the WeWork model to housing, offering a fully furnished and digitally connected community of like-minded people. The building features top-of-the-line audiovisual equipment and network infrastructure for 24 studio apartments as well as the community kitchen and living room, all of which are connected through an app that keeps residents informed of what's happening around them. And of course, it has been secured to the nines with access control and intrusion detection throughout.
"This project has been an interesting take on integrating technology into a multi-family building--something we have been doing for more than a decade," commented Ghattas Hajjo, co-founder and principal at MCW. "We're really excited to be a part of the big things that WeWork is doing and can't wait to see what's in store for the future."
