Department of Treasury - Secretary Bridge

The bridge from the Secretary’s Suite which crosses over the moat to the East Wing of the White House, was in need of structural repairs as well as rehabilitation of its granite assemblies that support the steel railings. The railings were also in need of rehabilitation. The Meridien Group assembled a team of architects, engineers and preservation craftsmen to undertake the project. Phase I, the rehabilitation of the steel and glass canopy, was scheduled for normal business hours. This meant the crew had to accommodate the coming and going of the secretary and his security detail while attending to the tedious work of removing the paint and glazing.

For Phase II which will address the needs of the bridge, the A&E team is headed by Citadel DCA and includes Keast & Hood as structural engineers. Lorton Stone is the masonry restoration contractor. Custom Ornamental Iron is attending to stripping and powder coating the steel railing assembly.

The Meridien Group and their team has performed so admirably, that Treasury has awarded them the rehabilitation of the South Plaza’s sandstone and flagstone pavers, along with a new sub‐structure and drainage design.

Meridian was the general contractor on this effort to design and construct a new roofing system for the Department of Energy Headquarters Building.  As part of the work Meridien removed 3,100 linear feet of steel track, Air Handling Units (AHU's) & Dunnage and installed a new solar panel array system. AECOM/TISHMAN and CITADEL DCA are teamed with Meridien Group as subcontractors on this project. The project began in the Fall of 2016 with expected completion date of late calendar 2017/ early 2018.
