Thursday, September 22 at 12:00 PM | Designing Low Voltage Infrastructure for Technology Spaces, in Partnership with FSR
Modern environments such as classrooms, collaboration, meeting and board rooms have seen a transformation in both their overall layout and how they are being utilized, post pandemic. Low voltage systems, IT, AV, and building managements systems in the past were stand alone systems, and this isolation between them caused visually disruptive issues with respect to aesthetics and the user experience. This presentation will showcase how by working together in the early phases of a project, facility management, IT and AV teams will eliminate many challenges for designers and engineers planning a space layout. We will cover in detail audiovisual and data applications in various spaces, and the connectivity requirements associated with them for onsite and remote applications. We will address smart and aesthetically pleasing ways to disguise a variety of ceiling, wall and floor boxes as cable management solutions. The presentation is approved for credit by the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).
