proAV’s award-winning year continues with a finalists place at the 2018 InAVation Awards
proAV has scored yet another coup at the 2018 InAVation Awards for its stand-out corporate AV solution at the City of London base of one of the world’s most renowned financial institutions.
This, one of the most ingenious integrated AV schemes ever devised – and the then-largest specified corporate AV project ever completed in the UK, was an extensive project for the leading global financial services companies that is headquartered in Zurich and serves clients from over 60 countries worldwide.
proAV was commissioned by AV specialist consultant, PTS, to deliver a scheme that would accommodate the needs of nearly 5,500 members of staff, 3,000 of whom now work on the building’s new vast trading floors that cover 770,000 square feet. This represents the largest single concentration of traders within the City of London.
proAV’s future-proofed, integrated, end-to-end AV solution, which took some 16 months to complete, was designed to promote exceptional meeting, collaboration and presentation facilities with easy to use control systems – all supported by an enterprise remote management platform. It encompassed two packages of work; all consistently remaining BREEAM compliant to ensure the sustainability of the iconic building and its overall environmental performance was upheld. The result was a superb technological scheme that enhances business relationships, staff and client experiences and overall communications through the use of its new state-of-the-art AV facilities.
proAV’s most challenging, yet highly respected projects to date.
The project has already been recognised with the Ultimate Crestron Award, which was followed with a worthy shortlisting at the AV Awards this summer, so the news this high profile project has made the InAVation Awards’ hotly contested shortlist in the Corporate Facility category has naturally delighted the management team at proAV.
‘We’re absolutely thrilled to be announced as a finalist in the InAVation Awards Corporate Facility category,’ commented Richard Brookes, Managing Director of proAV.
‘This project called for a seamless deployment across this global client’s network, which relied on the efforts of a skilled project team who managed the complex infrastructure and technologies thanks to the bespoke systems and processes we devised specially for the client. By working closely with both PTS and the client, we’ve installed and commissioned the largest corporate AV project to date in the UK that met the client’s expectation and demand for an easy to use building-wide AV solution that is supported by a robust enterprise asset management system. The scheme deployed is both resilient and well supported and has ultimately reassured the client that their investment has been future-proofed and supports the latest AV/IT standards.
‘This remains one of our most challenging, yet highly respected projects to date – our place on the shortlist for yet another AV industry award is testament to that success.’
Winners will be announced at the 2018 InAVation Awards ceremony and dinner that takes place on 6th February in Amsterdam during the ISE 2018 event.
