Introduction

Standard Bank is a leading African banking group with activities focussed on emerging markets across the globe.

The project brief

proAV was asked to deliver extensive professional audio visual and video conferencing systems for Standard Bank's new landmark offices in Gresham Street, London. The bank occupies over 150,000 square feet of prime office space over four floors of the building.

proAV delivered numerous high-impact display systems and wide-ranging and fully-interactive audio and video conferencing, presentation and communications facilities, while site-wide TV distribution and world zone clock systems were commissioned as part of the installation.

We designed and installed an integrated suite of dynamic high-end audio visual technologies using an approach that is sensitive to Standard Bank's secure operations yet powerful enough to consistently meet the demands on an international banking institution. These technologies formed part of a cutting-edge meeting, presentation and communications solutions that's conducive to a collaborative working environment for employees and clients located both within the building and across a global network of operations.
