Kinly delivered the prestigious project for Bloomberg’s new European headquarters. Located in the heart of the City of London in between the Bank of England and St Paul’s Cathedral, the eight storey building straddles a three-acre site and has over 450,000 square feet of office space to house its 4,500 employees and modern media services.
Following a lengthy and highly competitive tender process, Bloomberg appointed Kinly to deliver a major audio-visual installation for the media giant’s ‘special areas’ project, covering a NOC (Network Operations Centre), VIP Dining Room and 15 Training Rooms.
Kinly worked closely with the building contractor (Sir Robert McAlpine) and commissioning consultant (PTS Consulting). The NOC includes three Planar video walls and an interactive 98” LCD display which are installed to bespoke floor mounted stands to match the aesthetics of the metal ‘fins’ on the outside of the building.
The VIP Dining Room will be used by Michael Bloomberg when entertaining dignitaries and clients. This room has discreet but cutting edge AV.
One such example is the Meyer Constellation voice lift system, which has 7 microphones built into the lighting pendants above the table and 60 active speakers in the ceiling and floor heating through to allow incredibly natural and discreet voice lift so that anyone on the table can speak and be heard by anyone else.
Finally, Kinly delivered 15 Training & Flex rooms, which are impressive training spaces with dual or triple 84” and 98” displays. They employ a Q-Sys voice lift system with Shure beam forming ceiling microphones so all delegates in the room can be heard during training. The spaces are a mixture of divisible and fixed rooms and are designed to train Bloomberg terminal users so intelligibility of the visual information and the trainers’ audio are paramount, hence the investment in these spaces.
Once complete, the colossal Bloomberg Place will be one of the most impressive spaces in London’s business district. Kinly’s implementation will be part of an unprecedented building project, estimated to have cost in excess of £1.2bn.
