Acentech works closely with our clients to create work environments that promote collaboration, communication and productivity. We take an integrated consulting approach to corporate and commercial spaces, ensuring that IT, security, audiovisual systems and acoustics are all considered from the beginning of the project. Our consultants focus on understanding the unique needs of each client and the performance and budget requirements of each project. We pride ourselves on engaging clients in a thorough planning process, and we stay involved from the design phase through construction administration and onsite equipment testing.

Our corporate and commercial portfolio includes acoustics, IT, security, and audiovisual system design for a variety of spaces including:

  • Open office and high-performance workplace environments
  • Conference centers and training facilities
  • Videoconferencing rooms and in-house multimedia production studios
  • Atriums and public spaces

As workplace trends and demographics change, technology in the corporate environment is evolving as well. Acentech’s consultants stay abreast of these technology trends and work collaboratively to ensure that technology is appropriately designed and coordinated to the architectural and mechanical conditions of the workplace. For example, video image distribution methods have completely changed in the last few years with the emergence of ultra high (4K) resolutions that require extremely high bandwidth networks and cabling for transport. Similarly, collaboration and teamwork have shifted the focus from workstations to huddle spaces with technology for shared work. The communication and videoconferencing experience in these spaces is much improved when room acoustics and lighting are suitably designed.
