Modern Office, Modern Learning
Founded in 1870 as a family of carpenters, Gilbane, Inc. is one of the construction and real estate development industry's largest privately-held family-owned companies. Though Gilbane has more than 45 office locations around the world, its global headquarters remains in Providence, Rhode Island.
In 2016, after working with Shanix for many other clients over the years, Gilbane brought us on board to outfit their new headquarters. This brand-new location includes offices, multiple collaborative spaces, and learning center rooms.
Throughout the building, digital displays on each floor showcase a montage of Gilbane's many projects over their history.
In each of the headquarters' small collaborative spaces, 65-inch Samsung displays were paired to Crestron soundbars with integrated microphone and camera. This allows for both presentations and video conferencing with simple bring-your-own-device connections.
For larger conference rooms, two side-by-side 65-inch Samsung displays create a single ultrawide image or can be separated into two screens. Logitech cameras and in-ceiling microphones create an atmosphere where everyone in the room can be heard.
Gilbane's state-of-the-art Learning Center accommodates up to one hundred individuals. A Crestron digital matrix and touch panel coordinate transmissions to up to sixteen displays, including mobile wheeled units that create greater flexibility within the space. Fixed display units and Shure ceiling-mounted microphones and speakers ensure that learners are able to engage from every part of the room.
