Bloomberg consolidated their New York operations into 731 Lexington Avenue, a 55-story skyscraper in Manhattan. The interior build-out project included open and closed offices, corporate- and executive-level conference rooms, broadcast studios, lobbies and a grand, winter-garden entrance. The company’s dynamic and upbeat environment required a level of design energy and sophistication that provided unique challenges for Shen Milsom & Wilke’s team.
Our acoustical consultants provided recommendations for the open-office workstations, general offices and multiple training rooms. These designs concentrated on occupant comfort and privacy. We also provided isolated construction designs for the broadcast area.
Throughout the project’s duration, our audiovisual team coordinated with the various departments at Bloomberg to develop the best technology approach. Bloomberg’s procurement department provided invaluable input, and, together, we maximized cost savings. The technology design utilized the IP network to manage assets and distribute content, so we worked with hardware manufacturers, software companies and operations staff to find IP-based tools that fit the capability requirements. Because Bloomberg doesn’t have dedicated audiovisual staff, we also provided project management support during build out, addressing each department’s technology concerns.
