Cerami provided technology, audiovisual and acoustical consulting services for Northwestern Mutual’s new headquarters expansion project, located along the downtown Milwaukee lake front and over 1.1 million SF.

Our team worked closely with Northwestern Mutual to develop a “state of the possible” and helping guide the client through technology analysis and decision making with a 30-year vision. Teaming with stakeholders and the design teams, Cerami developed the communications infrastructure, including all audiovisual presentation, and conferencing systems. The new building’s technology was integrated into the fabric of the existing six-building campus.

Results from the design effort include offsetting Northwestern Mutual’s horizontal cable plant costs with high-density Wi-Fi for users as the primary network, along with the implementation of airblown fiber to simplify the connectivity of the new building to the existing campus and enable future infrastructure upgrades.
