When blueprints for a new office design are being drawn up, technology should be considered in the earliest conversations about the construction project. We see far too often that AV is an afterthought and thus the most optimal solution for the client isn’t what ends up being installed. The last thing senior members of the operations, or facilities teams want is to hear years of negative feedback surrounding conference room AV in new construction or freshly remodeled offices. While most new technology is compact, it’s not an excuse for neglecting AV it when it comes to design. It’s important to ensure the space can accommodate the equipment and that the cabling and system technical aspects support long-term growth and scalability.

AV for architects doesn’t have to be an afterthought that is considered when the space is already built or remodeled. AV integrators like us provide opportunities to engage in what we call a design-build. Not only can we help to install and service the system(s), but we can also help architects optimally design the system for visual and acoustic clarity within the space pre-construction phase. When conference room design considers AV technologies and their purpose, it’s vastly easier to create a functional yet, one-of-a-kind office space, where the system integration is seamless and hardly noticeable.

Rather than simply having a company come in and hang some ceiling speakers here and there, a partnership with an AV integrator like Bluewater ensures that architects, developers, and even general contractors are able to provide a space that dazzles everyone while staying technologically maximized. We have the latest cutting-edge audio-visual technology available, resulting in a space with the highest level of functionality while still providing an aesthetically pleasing look and feel. Depending on client needs, a high-quality sound system might be sufficient, while others might want a jaw-dropping high-end video system.

Fully Functional Conference Room Design With Audio Visual Technology

When AV technologies are part of the construction plans of a new or remodeled office design, the functionality of the space can be maximized. Bluewater has superior AV packages featuring all the leading brands that can be customized to the conference room design. We can provide the exact specifications of our technology ahead of time to foster collaboration in the design process.

Our AV packages can even be purchased on a subscription basis so that companies can avoid another large capital expenditure on top of their costly real estate investments or office remodels. A low monthly payment (often times in the hundreds of dollars range) can deliver a space that makes architects and developers proud and leaves customers in amazement with the integrated space. Our subscription clients even receive managed services included, so there is never a reason to worry about up-time or reliability. Not only that, but every three to four years Bluewater can upgrade clients with the latest and greatest cutting-edge package. Having helped to design the audio-visual system and the space initially, we will know what upgrades are vital and eliminate waste while creating an optimal enhancement.

Benefits of Incorporating AV Into Early Office Design 

When you incorporate Bluewater’s audio visual equipment and expertise into office design, your clients will see and appreciate the forward-thinking scalability for years to come. AV equipment is inevitably a need for every office, so rather than trying to find a place to fit it in or hanging the equipment once the office is built or remodeled, it’s more efficient for all parties to include the office technology early in the building process.
