The Athene USA offices include an 8-story tower and adjoining commons building which houses 1,300 employees and cost over $150 million. The facility sits on an 88-acre site on the outskirts of the city, and features extensive outdoor pathways and several ponds.
AVANT ACOUSTICS provided the following services:
- Audio-visual and digital signage systems design
- Architectural acoustics and mechanical noise consultation
- On-site system commissioning, including operator training and assistance
AVANT ACOUSTICS’ design included several multi-configuration training rooms, dozens of conference rooms, a building-wide room scheduling and maintenance system to serve the meeting spaces, a digital signage system throughout the facility, and sound masking on all seven floors of open work/collaboration areas. The executive boardroom features a large rear projection screen and teleconferencing.
The “All Hands” system pictured includes three projection screens with production-level video processing capability and live audio mixing. This system enables the client to host large meetings and events in-house, rather than renting out spaces and AV equipment several times a year.
