As a reflection of their growth in the U.S., Bank of China left behind their home on the east side to plant roots near one of the city’s most iconic landscapes at 7 Bryant Park. Cerami was engaged to provide full information technology, audiovisual, acoustical, and physical security design and migration support for Bank of China New York’s relocation. This project boasts 16 floors of offices, employee amenities, trading floor, meeting and training center, conference floor, data center and ground floor retail. Cerami also was the base building acoustical consultant.
Signature Solution: We provided acoustical design criteria that promotes and supports speech intelligibility, acoustical privacy, and comfort in the various components of the project. We made recommendations for each space and the required acoustically absorptive materials to control reverberation.
Our technology responsibilities include carrier/service provider facilities, data center, cabling infrastructure, wireless network design, as well as audiovisual solutions for the retail bank branch, all workplace areas, and specialty spaces including trading floor, training and collaboration rooms, conference rooms, boardroom, and multi-purpose conference center.
In addition, we provided specialty trading systems technology consulting including trading turret solution design, market information consulting services, and integration with non-trading enterprise technology platforms. We also ensured the successful deployment of all trading and non-trading technology systems for the new site and led the migration of systems from existing locations to the new location.
