Enjoying a long history of successful projects as a subcontractor to this General Contractor, TRITECH was the natural choice to be the AV integration partner when the Company decided to upgrade and expand their headquarters building in Virginia. TRITECH was also selected to provide AV design and integration services for the Co|Lab building. Each project had its own set of unique challenges but a tight timeline, high visibility spaces and strict attention to detail were common to both. The HQ project features a Bid Room that is used to organize and track every project the company is pursuing so accuracy and acuity of the displays was critical. The Co|Lab is a building that is built around collaboration so easy to use, high quality collaboration tools were a necessity.
The design teams created spaces that are beautiful to look at and inhabit but that also provide a comfortable environment to work in. The technology TRITECH installed unobtrusively blends into that environment while providing the information required to conduct business. The numerous video walls installed into the HQ building are encased into the surrounding millwork while wireless control panels and Barco Clickshare systems allow for simple and wireless connections to displays.
The Co|Lab also utilizes Barco Clickshare systems. These wireless collaboration tools allow the many presenters that attend conferences to share their data onto the displays. The demonstration/discovery space contains moveable and fixed displays that can be used in hands-on demonstrations as well as classroom style configurations. The large multi-purpose room seats over (36) and features (5) 90” displays with an installed sound system and multiple wireless microphones. System control and configuration can be done from either the installed control panels or the wireless ones, giving presenters great flexibility and mobility.
In a project where easy collaboration with minimal technology intrusion were the fundamental requirements, the AV systems provided by TRITECH easily fulfilled those requirements. The HQ space is highly utilized and regarded by visitors, subcontractors and employees. The Co|Lab is a unique, world class facility that will set the standard for collaboration within the construction industry. Their website, https://colab.build/ provides more detail.
