Kermit Aquaponics Facility

The Kermit Aquaponics Facility project was started in the spring of 2019 and completed in the winter of 2019. The facility includes a full greenhouse with automated roof-vents, side curtain, heaters, fans, and grow-lights for climate control. The facility was built on reclaimed abandoned mine land and will be capable of producing a variety of vegetables, along with fresh filleted tilapia. Multiple schools will be using the facility to do research and learn the plant life cycle

Private Residence

A great client of Persinger purchased this beautiful historic home in Charleston in the Spring of 2019.  The restoration and additions included a new kitchen and butler’s pantry, bathroom renovations, and an outdoor sports court.  This home is one of West Virginia’s most historic and architecturally significant properties.  It remains on the historic registry and all work was completed with approval from the WV State Historic Preservation Office.

Beckley Police Station

The Beckley City Police Department was in desperate need of a new facility.  Persinger & Associates was awarded the contract to build the new headquarters in the winter of 2018 and work started immediately.  The 22,000 sf two story building houses offices, training rooms, an evidence room, holding cells, and a gym with locker rooms.  Congratulations to the Beckley Police Department on their new home!

Chapmanville Intermediate School

The Chapmanville Intermediate School Project was started in the spring of 2017 and completed in July of 2018. The 40,000 sf two story building is comprised of Insulated Concrete Form walls and structural steel. Although bid as a multi-prime contract under a construction manager, the project finished as multi primes working under the General Contractor. Persinger & Associates proved its abilities by completing the school and adjusting to the changing landscape of leadership and various Owner agendas.

Mile Marker 69 Rest Area

The new Mile Marker 69 Rest Area includes a new office and maintenance facility with a waste water treatment plant for the West Virginia Parkway Authority. Some notable features of construction include: load-bearing masonry cavity wall construction, stone veneer and fiber-cement siding over insulating sheathing, metal standing seam roof over insulating roof sheathing, steel roof framing, multiple restrooms and a snack bar with a complete kitchen. This project also included extensive site work such as: paved driveways and parking areas, curbs, sidewalks and new landscaping.

Lewis County Transportation Facility

This much-needed bus garage bid originally came in over budget. However, we were able to value engineer the project, and ultimately, we renovated the former West Virginia National Guard Armory to construct the new Transportation Facility. This project consisted of building and site demolition, building site work, site utility work, concrete paving, and mechanical and electrical upgrades. Materials used included chain-link fencing, masonry, structural steel, metal panels, steel frames, wooden doors, overhead garage doors, and gypsum board assemblies.

Private Residence

This two-story house, built entirely of real wood with no synthetics used inside or out, sits on a 3,700 sq. ft footprint, accompanied by a pool and outdoor kitchen. For this project, we built a road and cleared virgin land in the south hills, and also helped the owner work through complicated subdividing and permitting procedures. Connor Homes, of Middlebury, Vermont, provided plugged White Oak flooring, coffered ceilings, and two wood burning fireplaces.

Moses BMW

Moses BMW in St. Albans West Virginia is the only BMW dealership in the state. To keep up with updated facilities requirements from BMW International, Moses BMW was required to add on to the existing showroom space as well as renovate the existing service space. Bastian & Harris Architects led the design effort and received approval from the BMW design team before construction began. The entire showroom space was demolished and a 500 square foot addition was added to make room for the new requirement of 8 cars in the showroom.

The build back included all new interiors with painted drywall, ceramic tile, new ceilings, and lights. The parts department and the service center were completed after the showroom. The service center now features 11,000 square feet of ceramic tile flooring, another BMW requirement. The entire facility achieved compliance from BMW International shortly after completion.
