Crestline is an award-winning investment management firm. Founded in 1997, it has six offices globally in Texas, New York, London, Tokyo, and Toronto.
Working alongside Build Generation, which specialises in office design and fitout for corporate offices, Runtech installed AV/VC in the client’s new central London office. As the client had a planned move in date, work had to be completed within a tight deadline. Any AV hardware that was in good working condition was decommissioned and repurposed for the new office.
The project scope included:
• Four meeting rooms
• Two VC booths
• Desktop monitors
• Tea point area
Crestline has a modern seating area overlooking its four meeting rooms, which can be used for hosting visitors. Due to the varying meeting room size, Runtech installed 55in and 43in LG commercial displays depending on the optimal viewing distance.
The client’s preferred VC platform was Microsoft Teams with a BYOD option available. For consistency, Logitech was the chosen hardware. In the larger meeting rooms, Runtech installed a Logitech Rally Bar Mini with a Tap Controller for one-touch join. To enhance audio quality, it installed a Rally Mic Pod. In the smaller rooms, a Logitech MeetUp was installed. HDMI and USB cables are available in each meeting room to provide a BYOD option. A Logitech room booking panel was mounted outside each meeting room.
In the open plan office, Crestline requested each desk had a large, curved monitor screen. Runtech installed 17 Samsung 34in curved monitors, three of which were in private offices. In each VC booth, an LG 32in display was installed with a Logitech Brio for video conferencing. A custom plate was installed below the display, allowing the user to connect their laptop to the display.
In the Tea Point area, we installed the client’s existing Clevertouch display. Additionally, a Google Chromecast was connected to the system to allow the client to play Internet-streamed content or TV apps.
