A premier law firm servicing numerous Fortune 500 companies, Thelen, Reid & Priest LLP stays current with the pace of technology and so selected Cerami & Associates to provide audiovisual, IT and security design for their new DC offices.

A large conference room can be divided into three independent presentation rooms and built-in audio conferencing, ceiling-recessed front projection screens and monitors, laptop computers, flat panel plasma displays, and an integrated control system were provided.

The design of the dedicated video conferencing room includes flat panel displays, an audioconferencing system, and an integrated control system. The typical presentation rooms are also equipped with an integrated control system that is used to manage the front projection screens, laptop computers, ceiling loudspeakers and audioconferencing systems.

Our IT team was responsible for the design, specification and implementation management of the entire IT infrastructure, including Telco Services entry design and carrier coordination, main and satellite equipment room rack and cabinet layout, MEP coordination and inter-room connectivity. In addition, voice and data backbone pathways, conduits and cable trays were specified, along with horizontal category 6 connectivity, outlet and termination hardware. The security design involved an access control system, door hardware specification, intrusion detection, alarm notification systems, a surveillance camera monitoring system design that utilized digital video recording technology.
