Creation of the Facilities

Project Scope:

The Optimum Group had the responsibility, working under direction of Trade Center Management, to conduct feasibility studies on the City of Washington, D.C’s demand for special conference space and recommend the initial design of the Conference Center in the Ronald Reagan Building, including the capacity and number of special function rooms required.

Further, consultant specified and gathered information on necessary catering equipment and supplies for purchase by the U.S. Government, valued at $1.3 million.

Consultant set up all operating systems for the Conference Center prior to opening of the Ronald Reagan Building and specified staffing and labor schedules and expected expenses as standards for implementing an expected $10 million revenue budget.

Consultant also acted for six months as service director, followed by three months advising sales staff after the Center had opened, the period during which a search was conducted for permanent staff.
