PartnerRe are one of the largest reinsurance companies in the world, with offices across the globe and over 9 billion dollars in capital.
PartnerRe selected Fitting Image AV Sales Ltd. to provide their AV solutions when relocating their offices from Ballsbridge to the IFSC in Dublin’s Docklands. The project took place from the beginning of March 2020. The installation involved separate systems in fifteen different locations within the building, ranging from two-person huddle rooms to larger meeting rooms, including a twenty-two-person conference room.
“The overall process from RFP to implementation, amendments and final testing was very professional and it’s been very easy to work with the staff. The quality of work is excellent”.
– Alex Sennhauser, Service Management Executive Audio/Video PartnerRe IT Business Services
With the new office build being a three-month-long project, Fitting Image were involved in weekly progress meetings to ensure that power and data cabling, as well as timber grounds for monitor supports, were installed correctly before commencing the Audio Visual installation process.
As PartnerRe were users of Polycom VC products, Fitting Image installed five Polycom video conferencing systems to enhance the equipment they already had. These included two EagleEye Producer systems and two EagleEye Director systems. In the case of the twenty-two-person boardroom, we installed two Shure MXA Ceiling Mics, which are beam forming microphone systems that look like ceiling tiles. Each of these systems use auto tracking of the active speaker.
The video conferencing rooms included a dedicated VC-only room with two 55” monitors, a six-person meeting room, a ten-person meeting room, a fourteen-person meeting room, and the twenty-two-person boardroom. The displays ranged in size from 55” to 90”, and Barco Clickshare was employed to enable wireless connectivity of laptops. Fitting Image also installed Brightsign Digital Signage in the reception and the canteen areas to communicate their messaging to their workforce within their global network.
Two weeks before the agreed moving date, a Fitting Image team went to the Ballsbridge office and uninstalled the existing AV equipment at that location. This was then transported to the IFSC building for installation.
The project was overseen by the client who was based in Switzerland but maintained regular contact, ensuring the project progressed smoothly. By the moving day, all of the Audio Visual facilities were in place. Once the client had moved in to the new office, the Fitting Image project manager ensured the users were shown how to operate their new Audio Visual facilities with ease.
Although this installation involved many moving parts, overall, the project ran smoothly and was a great success due to our highly experienced management team.
