When blueprints for a new office design are being drawn up, office technology should be considered in the earliest conversations. 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 a new, or freshly remodeled office. While most new technology is compact, it’s not an excuse for neglecting 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. When conference room design considers the AV technologies that will be utilized, it’s significantly easier to create a functional, one-of-a-kind space, where the system is integrated into the design in a way that can create “wow” moments or be hardly noticeable at all (dependent upon client needs and desires).

Rather than simply having a company come in and hang some gear 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 that sees it, while still remaining 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.

Fully Functional Conference Room Design With Audio Visual Technology

When AV technologies are considered in the blueprint of a new or remodeled office design, the functionality of the space can be maximized. Bluewater has superior AV packages for architects featuring all of the leading brands that can be customized to the conference room design. We can provide the specifications of all of our technology ahead of time to foster collaboration in the design process. Not only that, but these AV packages can even be purchased on a subscription basis so that the company the architect is working with can avoid another large capital expenditure in a time where their real estate investment or office remodel is already a gigantic capital expense. 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 of 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 we will refresh the technology with the latest and greatest cutting-edge package. Having helped to design the system and the space prior we will know exactly 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 of the architect or designer that the technology will provide for years to come. It’s inevitable that AV equipment is 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 at specific times during the building process. Architects, AV integrators can influence your success on a project!
