Summary


From a robust Wi-Fi infrastructure and reliable network, to cost-effective yet suitable video conferencing and wireless conferencing systems, the solutions in place promote communication and collaborate throughout the workplace.

The technical highlight of this project is the 60 ft video wall found in the command centre. This space is dedicated to monitoring and proactively identifying market threats. The video wall sits in an area that brings three disparate teams into one carefully designed area to boost communication and collaboration. It provides FHLB with an improved way of monitoring and displaying vital information. Employees can display up to 20 videos, and data automatically triggers new configurations to bring essential information to the forefront.

Technology, however, not only needs to match the Client’s ambitions and user’s needs but its surroundings too. Glass features heavily in the front-of-house meeting room designs and without careful consideration, can impact audio quality. Microphones in the ceiling and table and absorption features in the ceilings and floors prevent the sound from distorting while maintaining aesthetics.

Functional, yet contemporary space that goes beyond work requirements. The inclusion of recreational spaces, well-being rooms, a gymnasium and employee lounge to provide information areas that encourage employees to congregate, share thoughts and ideas.

Depending on the scenario, data will trigger new configurations, allowing throse working in the area to shif their attention to the most important information, allowing FHLB to monitor threats easily and efficiently”
