Landsec win BREEAM award for sustainable AV & architecture

London, UK

The challenge

As one of the largest real estate companies in Europe, Landsec’s £13.8 billion portfolio spans 24 million sq ft of well-connected, experience-led retail, leisure, workspace and residential hubs, with a growing focus on London. Landsec own and manage some of the most successful and memorable real estate in the UK.

As the UK’s largest commercial property company, Landsec was looking to equip its head office with meeting facilities, interactive spaces and videoconferencing as well as flexible offices. The new HQ is housed over two connected buildings in Victoria, London.

The solution

The first building features a statement reception space, for which Kinly specified the world’s first 1.5mm Samsung LED Wall, measuring 2.8m x 1.6m with full HD resolution.

The office was the first to use a staggering 23 Microsoft Surface Hubs. In its desk spaces, twelve mobile Surface Hubs are available in both 55” and 84” models, which can be moved between the spaces, set up to plug and play. Each desk is equipped with a huddle space where the displays can be positioned for informal Skype for Bsuiness calls. Six meeting rooms also feature 84” Surface Hubs for private meetings. Staff use Surface Pros to miracast to the displays.

Four Project Rooms feature recessed 55” Surface Hubs, two mobile 84” Surface Hubs and a mobile 120” Draper projection screen with Sony VPL-FHZ65 projector. These can be combined to create one presentation suite.

The second building features twelve meeting rooms enabled with wireless presentation facilities via Barco Clickshare and Samsung displays and one large meeting room enabled elegantly with two VIVIDtouch 84” touch-screens. Every room is connected to a Condeco booking system via the business’s Office 365 calendar with 10.1” touchscreens, with staff using their building swipe cards to access the rooms and book meetings on the system. As a testament to the system’s high quality the business’ main boardroom features an 84” Surface Hub to remotely engage board directors and external stakeholders. A six-zone communal space boasts an audio system that can be controlled by a Jukebox, fed into a Crestron audio matrix to pendant and ceiling speakers, playing audio in one or all of the spaces simultaneously. The building’s hospitality area’s booth seating overlooked two statement 4x55” Samsung videowall displays and its digital signage system includes 20 Samsung 40” displays connected via a ONELAN network displaying schedulable content, with departments able to tailor this in their own areas. The entire AV system is remotely managed by Kinly’s service desk, who use an advanced monitoring solution to proactively monitor device status, health and performance, to eliminate equipment downtime and avoid system failures.

The result

The building was awarded a BREEAM ‘Refurbishment and Fit Out’ Award, with 80% of its AV reaching energy star certification standards.
