Systems Contractor News, one of Installation‘s unrivalled stable of sister publications and part of AV Network, has announced its Installs of the Year for 2020. Highlights include Thrivent Financial’s 264,000-square-foot headquarters in Minneapolis, Dubai International’s new Airport Operations Control Centre (AOCC), and University of Pennsylvania’s Law School/Silverman Hall installation.
With a capacity for more than 1,000 employees, the new Thrivent Financial HQ includes a café and bank, over 200 meeting rooms, and several common areas, boardrooms, and presentation rooms. AVI Systems helped Thrivent transform its approach to AV equipment with this award-winning installation.
Dubai International’s new Airport Operations Control Centre (AOCC) houses several teams managing airport operations 24/7. Integrator Aesthetix designed and integrated a state-of-the-art AV solution for the AOCC control room. The objective was to provide a user-friendly, flexible video wall solution for operators to view live visuals and data for monitoring and collaborative decision-making.
Penn Law’s premier building, Lewis Hall (now Silverman Hall), opened in February of 1900. Now, AV integrator Solutionz and AV consultancy firm KMK Technologies have brought new life to these spaces through a balance of restored architectural elements and innovative AVo technologies from the likes of Audio-Technica, Christie Digital, Extron, JBL Pro, and Mersive.
